Improper Limitation of a Pathname to a Restricted Directory ('Path Traversal')
qpress before PierreLvx/qpress 20220819 and before version 11.3, as used in Percona XtraBackup and other products, allows directory traversal via ../ in a .qp file.
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.
