Test case 157017


The system or application is vulnerable to file system contents
disclosure through path equivalence. Path equivalence involves the
use of special characters in file and directory names. The associated
manipulations are intended to generate multiple names for the same
object. This test will accept input of a file to read, but prohibits access
to file in the /etc directory. The input generates an equivalent name
/////etc/////passwd which bypasses the filter.
