    Debian Bug     : 733108
    
    Jakub Wilk discovered that in requests, an HTTP library for the Python
    language, authentication information was improperly handled when a
    redirect occured. This would allow remote servers to obtain two
    different types of sensitive information: proxy passwords from the
    Proxy-Authorization header (CVE-2014-1830), or netrc passwords from
    the Authorization header (CVE-2014-1829).
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.12.1-1+deb7u1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie) and unstable
    distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.3.0-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your requests packages.
