Description John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2021-10-07 18:31:33 UTC
CVE-2021-40978:

The mkdocs 1.2.2 built-in dev-server allows directory traversal using the port 8000, enabling remote exploitation to obtain :sensitive information.

Seems unreported upstream, but I'm unconvinced they'll care about this anyway.
Comment 1 John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2021-10-08 17:25:34 UTC
Not a real security issue according to upstream.
