Description John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2021-04-12 21:48:28 UTC
CVE-2021-29425:

In Apache Commons IO before 2.7, When invoking the method
FileNameUtils.normalize with an improper input string, like
"//../foo", or "\\..\foo", the result would be the same value, thus
possibly providing access to files in the parent directory, but not
further above (thus "limited" path traversal), if the calling code
would use the result to construct a path value.


Fixed in >=2.7. Please bump.
