Linux euklid 2.4.1 #4 SMP Thu Feb 1 20:24:02 CET 2001 i686 unknown
>Description:
For example: the URL
http://www.weltenhaus.net/diverse/moerder/../BER204.JPG
provides a perfect result even though the path "moerder" is not
existant at the server. Doing this, people can a) severely skew
my statistics by introducing arbitrary keywords and b) publish
URLs on my server which sound clearly misleading.
>How-To-Repeat:
http://www.weltenhaus.net/diverse/moerder/../BER204.JPG
>Fix:
Check the complete path for existance instead of taking the shortcut and
reducing it with the given instances of ".."
