Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
The package github.com/valyala/fasthttp before 1.34.0 are vulnerable to Directory Traversal via the ServeFile function, due to improper sanitization. It is possible to be exploited by using a backslash %5c character in the path. **Note:** This security issue impacts Windows users only.
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.
