Description John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2020-10-15 18:57:08 UTC

Erlang/OTP 22.3.x before and 23.x before 23.1 allows Directory Traversal. An attacker can send a crafted HTTP request to read arbitrary files, if httpd in the inets application is used.

Cleanup appears to be partially addressed by bug 740894, otherwise we need to stabilize a fixed version. Maintainers, please call for stabilization when ready.

(Shifting the blocker because it'll be a pain for stabilisation).

Maintainer: ping. ready?
