Description

Cherokee is prone to a directory-traversal vulnerability because it fails to sufficiently sanitize user-supplied input data.

Exploiting the issue may allow an attacker to obtain sensitive information that could aid in further attacks.

Cherokee 0.5.4 and prior versions are vulnerable.
