One issue has been discovered in lighttpd: fast webserver with minimal memory

CVE-2018-19052: an issue was discovered in mod_alias_physical_handler in
mod_alias.c in lighttpd before 1.4.50. There is potential ../ path traversal of
a single directory above an alias target, with a specific mod_alias
configuration where the matched alias lacks a trailing '/' character, but the
alias target filesystem path does have a trailing '/' character.
