Description Robb Gatica 2024-01-22 04:41:04 UTC
A potential directory traversal vulnerability in JBoss EAP was discovered. Initial tests determined that appending "/..;/" to a request will return the JBoss EAP welcome page from the / directory.

Comment 3 Salvatore Bonaccorso 2024-03-10 14:30:17 UTC
Is this issue fixed upstream in undertow? Is there an upstream fixing commit and/or upstream issue to track this?

Comment 4 James Howe 2024-04-16 14:15:41 UTC
This is apparently fixed in 2.3.12. I don't know why RedHat never communicates properly about security issues.
