digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 21409] New: [Bug]


          Issue ID: 21409
           Summary: [Bug] std.datetime.timezone.PosixTimeZone.getTimeZone
                    allows for path traversal
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: FreeBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: phobos

`getTimeZone` appends and resolves relatives paths in the tz database. This
allows for things like:


This fails with "Not a valid tzdata file.", which I consider unexpected
behaviour and, thus, a bug.

Generally, I would expect `getTimeZone` to never escape `/usr/share/zoneinfo/`.

If this is the intended behaviour, I am okay with this bug being closed.
