I was expecting, that reaction would be fast. Don't you guys believe that this is a strong security issue?

I can access http://myip:4080//etc/passwd from my browser.

Actually, i can access any file, readable by mldonkey, i just need to put a double slash before the name.

It looks like a thttpd double slash request arbitrary file access
vulnerability CVE-1999-1456.

I am astonished that this has been staying undetected and unfixed for such a long time.
