FreeBSD : py-httpie -- exposure of sensitive information vulnerabilities (1e37fa3e-5988-4991-808f-eae98047e2af)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 180381



The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The version of FreeBSD installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the 1e37fa3e-5988-4991-808f-eae98047e2af advisory.

- Exposure of Sensitive Information to an Unauthorized Actor in GitHub repository httpie/httpie prior to 3.1.0. (CVE-2022-0430)

- HTTPie is a command-line HTTP client. HTTPie has the practical concept of sessions, which help users to persistently store some of the state that belongs to the outgoing requests and incoming responses on the disk for further usage. Before 3.1.0, HTTPie didnt distinguish between cookies and hosts they belonged.
This behavior resulted in the exposure of some cookies when there are redirects originating from the actual host to a third party website. Users are advised to upgrade. There are no known workarounds.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update the affected packages.
