Package : requests CVE ID : CVE-2014-1829 CVE-2014-1830 Debian Bug : 733108

Jakub Wilk discovered that in requests, an HTTP library for the Python language, authentication information was improperly handled when a redirect occured. This would allow remote servers to obtain two different types of sensitive information: proxy passwords from the Proxy-Authorization header (CVE-2014-1830), or netrc passwords from the Authorization header (CVE-2014-1829).

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 0.12.1-1+deb7u1.

For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.3.0-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your requests packages.
