Mini Server "dot dot" directory traversal
|mini-server-directory-traversal (10366)||Medium Risk|
Mini Server could allow a remote attacker to traverse directories on the Web server. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request containing "dot dot" sequences using forward-slash or backslash characters (in the form of /../ or \..\) to traverse directories and view any file on the Web server.
Upgrade to the latest version of Mini Server (3.0 or later), when it becomes available, as listed in BugTraq Mailing List posting dated Sun Oct 13 2002 - 03:29:53 CDT. See References.
