Improper authorization check when accessing API resources.
API Gateway does not properly validate the token scope when accessing a resource with a trailing slash (e.g. "/foo/").
This vulnerability has an impact only if the resource has a trailing slash (e.g. "/foo/"). If such is the case, this allows attackers to bypass the intended access restrictions of the scope protected resources. This could lead to confidentiality, integrity and availability impact to the back-end services, depending on the provided functionalities and the security controls in place.
If you are using an affected product version, it is highly recommended to migrate to the latest released version to receive security fixes.
