Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
An attacker can include file contents from outside the `/adapter/xxx/` directory, where `xxx` is the name of an existent adapter like "admin". It is exploited using the administrative web panel with a request for an adapter file. **Note:** The attacker has to be logged in if the authentication is enabled (by default isn't enabled).
CWE-22 - Path Traversal
Path traversal (or directory traversal), is a vulnerability that allows malicious users to traverse the server's root directory, gaining access to arbitrary files and folders such as application code & data, back-end credentials, and sensitive operating system files. In the worst-case scenario, an attacker could potentially execute arbitrary files on the server, resulting in a denial of service attack. Such an exploit may severely impact the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of an application.
