Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2015-133
Posted Mar 30, 2015
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2015-133 - Python-requests was found to have a vulnerability, where the attacker can retrieve the passwords from ~/.netrc file through redirect requests, if the user has their passwords stored in the ~/.netrc file. It was discovered that the python-requests Proxy-Authorization header was never re-evaluated when a redirect occurs. The Proxy-Authorization header was sent to any new proxy or non-proxy destination as redirected. In python-requests before 2.6.0, a cookie without a host value set would use the hostname for the redirected URL exposing requests users to session fixation attacks and potentially cookie stealing.
