Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
SAF-T Framework Transaction SAFTN_G allows an attacker to exploit insufficient validation of path information provided by normal user, leading to full server directory access. The attacker can see the whole filesystem structure but cannot overwrite, delete, or corrupt arbitrary files on the server.
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.
