Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
Gin-vue-admin is a backstage management system based on vue and gin, which separates the front and rear of the full stack. Gin-vue-admin through 2.5.4 is vulnerable to path traversal, which leads to file upload vulnerabilities. Version 2.5.5 contains a patch for this issue. There are no workarounds aside from upgrading to a patched version.
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.
