Recently we have executed OWASP ZAP testing on our ZK application. It raises Path Traversal risk as part of the result.

The url tested is ends with


May i know how we can prevent this from ZK configuration, instead of controlling the access from the server that execute it.

sounds like a false positive reported by OWASP ZAP other people report the same zaproxy issue #3735 in combination with JS files.

The issue #3735 seems closed and fixed in version 30, did you try their latest version? Does the problem persist after upgrading?

I tested the given URL myself and all that's returned is the actual JS content of zk.wpd, and no directory structure. (ZK needs this JS content in order to work at all).

What content is returned if you open this URL directly in the browser?
