Exposure of Sensitive Information to an Unauthorized Actor


Severity Medium
Score 6.5/10


In apache-airflow package versions 2.5.0rc1 through 2.6.1, some potentially sensitive values were being shown to the user in certain situations. This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact configuration is not shown in the UI by default (only if `[webserver] expose_config` is set to `non-sensitive-only`), and not all uncensored values are actually sentitive.
