Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2020-11078.
More information:

In httplib2, an attacker controlling unescaped part of uri for `httplib2.Http.request()` could change request headers and body, send additional hidden requests to same server. This vulnerability impacts software that uses httplib2 with uri constructed by string concatenation, as opposed to proper urllib building with escaping.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 0.9+dfsg-2+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your python-httplib2 packages.
