A vulnerability, which was classified as critical, was found in Mulesoft and Mulesoft API Gateway (Automation Software) (the affected version is unknown). This affects an unknown code of the component APIkit/http-connector/OAuth2 Provider. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a path traversal vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-22. The product uses external input to construct a pathname that is intended to identify a file or directory that is located underneath a restricted parent directory, but the product does not properly neutralize special elements within the pathname that can cause the pathname to resolve to a location that is outside of the restricted directory. This is going to have an impact on availability. The summary by CVE is:

Directory Traversal in APIkit, http-connector, and OAuth2 Provider modules in Mulesoft 3.x, 4.x and Mulesoft API Gateway (all versions) released before August 1, 2019 allow remote attackers to read files accessible to the Mule process.

The weakness was shared 08/30/2019. This vulnerability is uniquely identified as CVE-2019-15630 since 08/26/2019. The exploitability is told to be easy. It is possible to initiate the attack remotely. No form of authentication is needed for exploitation. The technical details are unknown and an exploit is not publicly available. The attack technique deployed by this issue is T1006 according to MITRE ATT&CK.

Upgrading eliminates this vulnerability.
