    There was a possible directory traversal vulnerability in the Rack::Directory app that is bundled with Rack.
    
    Package        : ruby-rack
    Version        : 1.5.2-3+deb8u3
    CVE ID         : CVE-2020-8161
    
    
    There was a possible directory traversal vulnerability in the
    Rack::Directory app that is bundled with Rack.
    
    If certain directories exist in a director that is managed by
    `Rack::Directory`, an attacker could, using this vulnerability,
    read the contents of files on the server that were outside of
    the root specified in the Rack::Directory initializer.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    1.5.2-3+deb8u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-rack packages.
