Description

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 ).
