The remote web server is vulnerable to a directory traversal
The remote web server proxies certain requests to an Apache Tomcat
server and allows for directory traversal attacks against that because
Tomcat allows '/', '\', and '%5c' characters as directory separators.
By sending a specially crafted request, it is possible for an attacker
to break out of the given context and access web applications that may
not otherwise be proxied to the Tomcat web server.
