Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
This affects all versions of package convert-svg-core; all versions of package convert-svg-to-png; all versions of package convert-svg-to-jpeg. Using a specially crafted SVG file, an attacker could read arbitrary files from the file system and then show the file content as a converted PNG file.
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.
