Severity High
Score 10/10


DeepJavaLibrary(DJL) is an Engine-Agnostic Deep Learning Framework in Java. In ai.djl:api package versions through 0.27.0, it does not prevent absolute path archived artifacts from inserting archived files directly into the system, overwriting system files. This is patched in DJL Large Model Inference containers. Users are advised to upgrade.

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.
