Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
An issue was discovered in B&R Industrial Automation APROL before R4.2 V7.08. An attacker can get access to sensitive information outside the working directory via Directory Traversal attacks against AprolSqlServer, a different vulnerability than CVE-2019-16357.
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.
