Russell Jenkins reports:

It was possible to abuse session cookie values so that file-based session stores such as Dancer::Session::YAML or Dancer2::Session::YAML would attempt to read/write from any file on the filesystem with the same extension the file-based store uses, such as '*.yml' for the YAML stores.
