You can learn more on Jira, Release 1.12.0.


Apache Shiro, before 1.12.0 or 2.0.0-alpha-3, may be susceptible to a path traversal attack that results in an authentication bypass when used together with APIs or other web frameworks that route requests based on non-normalized requests.

Mitigation: Update to Apache Shiro 1.12.0+ or 2.0.0-alpha-3+.

Credit: Apache Shiro would like to thank swifty tk for reporting this issue.
