Description

WinGate contains a flaw that allows an attacker to traverse outside of a restricted path. The issue is due to the log service not properly sanitizing user input, specifically directory traversal style attacks (e.g., ../../). This directory traversal attack would allow the attacker to gain access to arbitrary files.
