While setting up Apache 2 on my linux box, I was testing pages with lynx, rather than load up netscape. All was working fine, so I checked a page under my regular user folder (in public_html) and inadvertantly typed in ~hostnameThis gave me full directory traversal of the computer. Is this a regular feature of lynx?
I checked it out further by telnetting to an account I had, and got the same thing. It appeared, that I had no more access than I would normally have with telnet or ssh, but I'd never run across this before. Any security problems with this, other than I shouldn't allow telnet?
