Description Laura Pardo 2018-03-23 17:28:05 UTC
A flaw was found in Nmap before 7.70. A directory traversal vulnerability in the way the non-default http-fetch script sanitized URLs. If a user manually ran this NSE script with against a malicious web server, the server could potentially (depending on NSE arguments used) cause files to be saved outside the intended destination directory. Existing files couldn't be overwritten.
