Use CVE-2015-1194 for the symlink following, which can allow access outside of the current directory. CVE distinguishes symlink following from path traversal as different vulnerability types. The fix for one issue is not necessarily guaranteed to fix the other. Also, since symlink following attacks can often be used against protected files within a directory that is already accessible to the attacker, it might cause confusion to use the "directory traversal" term to describe them. --- CVE assignment team, MITRE CVE Numbering Authority M/S M300 202 Burlington Road, Bedford, MA 01730 USA [ PGP key available through http://cve.mitre.org/cve/request_id.html ]
