Description

It was discovered that urllib3 incorrectly removed Authorization HTTP headers when handled cross-origin redirects. This could result in credentials being sent to unintended hosts. This issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Ubuntu 18.10. (CVE-2018-20060)

It was discovered that urllib3 incorrectly stripped certain characters from requests. A remote attacker could use this issue to perform CRLF injection. (CVE-2019-11236)

It was discovered that urllib3 incorrectly handled situations where a desired set of CA certificates were specified. This could result in certificates being accepted by the default CA certificates contrary to expectatons. This issue only affected Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, Ubuntu 18.10, and Ubuntu 19.04. (CVE-2019-11324).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
