https-proxy-agent is a module that provides an http.Agent implementation that connects to a specified HTTP or HTTPS proxy server, and can be used with the built-in https module.
Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Man-in-the-Middle (MitM).
When targeting a HTTP proxy, https-proxy-agent opens a socket to the proxy, and sends the proxy server a CONNECT request. If the proxy server responds with something other than a HTTP response 200, https-proxy-agent incorrectly returns the socket without any TLS upgrade. This request data may contain basic auth credentials or other secrets, is sent over an unencrypted connection. A suitably positioned attacker could steal these secrets and impersonate the client.
