Hi,

I'm not sure what the protocol is for reporting vulnerabilities,
so I won't say anything explict in this email.

A security company tested our site and found a type of malformed
URL that when handled by Nitro allows reading arbitrary files
on the host system.

I don't have a patch yet, but I'll begin debugging the issue
tomorrow morning.

When I do have a patch, what's the proper way for me to report
the issue?


Regards,

Bill
