the content of passwd on w3 server


I found a SSRF vulnerability in feed validator of w3,it can let attacker read
arbitrary server file,do port scan and detect internal network.
People can provide a url and let feed validator to validate it.If we use
file:///etc/passwd as url,the reponse will force to add http:// before our url
and echo an error.

But we can use a redirect.php as a redirector.Use
http://www.xxx.com/redirect.php?url=file:///etc/passwd as url and this time i
am able to read arbitrary file on the server.

I attached screenshots as proof of concept.
