Overview

scrapy-splash is a JavaScript support for Scrapy using Splash

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Exposure. When using HttpAuthMiddleware (i.e. the http_user and http_pass spider attributes) for Splash authentication, any non-Splash request will expose the credentials to the request target. This includes robots.txt requests sent by Scrapy when the ROBOTSTXT_OBEY setting is set to True.

Remediation

Upgrade scrapy-splash to version 0.8.0 or higher.
