Re: directory traversal vulnerability

The error message that you posted may just be a pathname in the
verbose error message and not necessarily a directory traversal issue.

As part of a penetration test, I would report on the fact that a full
pathname is given in an error message, but it would not be very highly
rated.

If you could give us some more info on what you did to cause the error
and post the full text of the error message, maybe we can help more.
