I would call that a Directory Traversal Vulnerability, if it allows a user
to read files that he doesn't have permission to read.

Remote user can read any files. Example:

Any file the webserver account can read.

http://btmgr.sourceforge.net/index.php3?body=../../../../../../usr/local
/apache/conf/httpd.conf

This is not a vulnerability in sourceforge, but in on of the project's
webpage. And anyone with a project on sourceforge can read the same
files using his webspace.
