EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 3.0.2.0 : python-urllib3 (EulerOS-SA-2019-1936)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 128939

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the python-urllib3 package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- urllib3 before version 1.23 does not remove the Authorization HTTP header when following a cross-origin redirect (i.e., a redirect that differs in host, port, or scheme). This can allow for credentials in the Authorization header to be exposed to unintended hosts or transmitted in cleartext.(CVE-2018-20060)

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

Solution

Update the affected python-urllib3 package.
