Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
A directory traversal issue was discovered in Gradle gradle-enterprise-test-distribution-agent before 1.3.2, test-distribution-gradle-plugin before 1.3.2, and gradle-enterprise-maven-extension 1.8 before 1.8.2. A malicious actor (with certain credentials) can perform a registration step such that crafted TAR archives lead to extraction of files into arbitrary filesystem locations.
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.
