exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.

sanitised before being used in a "readfile()" call. This can be
exploited to disclose the content of arbitrary files via directory
traversal attacks.

Example:
http://[host]/js/vendors.php?file=../../../../[file]%00foobar.js

The vulnerability has been reported in version 1.1.7.3363. Prior
versions may also be affected.
