Description

Overview

Affected versions of airbrake default to sending environment variables over an unencrypted HTTP connection. In scenarios where an attacker has a privileged network position, it is possible for them to capture and read these environment variables, which may result in leaking sensitive information.

Recommendation

Update to version 0.4.0 or later, or upgrade from the now-deprecated airbrake module to its replacement, airbrake-js.
