Description Kurt Seifried 2015-01-14 05:02:05 UTC
Pierre-Élie Fauché reports:

When using serve-static middleware version < 1.7.2 and it's configured to mount at the root it creates an open redirect on the site.

For example: If a user visits http://example.com//www.google.com/%2e%2e they will be redirected to www.google.com

Recommendations
Update to version 1.7.2 or greater. It also appears that you can set 'redirect: false' option to disable this behavior.
