WARNING: Unless you carefully lock down access to the server, whoever has access to this service will have the read access of the server. In short, anyone with access to this service could request and get "file:///etc/supersensitive_file_dont_read.txt". Or, if your server has access to your intranet, and you let the public hit this service, they will now have access to your intranet. See CVE-2015-3271
