Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
A Zip slip vulnerability in the Elasticsearch Connector in Liferay Portal 7.3.3 through 220.127.116.11, and Liferay DXP 7.3 before update 6, and 7.4 before update 19 allows attackers to create or overwrite existing files on the filesystem via the installation of a malicious Elasticsearch Sidecar plugin.
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.
