MiniPortal FTP directory traversal
|miniportal-ftp-directory-traversal (8171)||Low Risk|
MiniPortal could allow a remote attacker to traverse directories on the Web server. A remote attacker can use modified "dot dot dot" sequences that use three dots instead of two (/.../) to traverse directories outside of the FTP root directory and view any file on the system.
Upgrade to the latest version of MiniPortal (1.1.6 or later), available from the InstantServers Download Web site. See References.
