Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
In CommCell in Commvault before 14.68, 15.x before 15.58, 16.x before 16.44, 17.x before 17.29, and 18.x before 18.13, Directory Traversal can occur such that an attempt to view a log file can instead view a file outside of the log-files folder.
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.
