Node.js 'lib/send.js' Directory Traversal Vulnerability

Node.js is prone to a directory-traversal vulnerability because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input.

Remote attackers can use specially crafted requests with directory-traversal sequences ('../') to create or overwrite arbitrary files in the context of the application. This may aid in further attacks.

Versions prior to Node.js 0.8.4 are vulnerable.
