Vendor's Description:

"DirectContact turns your computer in real "friendly" HTTP server."

The program is unable to manage malicious patterns like ..\ or ../.
So an attacker can go out the document root assigned to the webserver
and see/download all the files available on the remote system.

3. The code:

To test the vulnerability:

via browser:
http://[host]:[port]/..\..\..\..\windows/system.ini
