A security update for New Relic's .NET agent fixes a vulnerability where the agent could unintentionally capture query parameters from external HTTP requests during a transaction trace.
Release date: Dec 18, 2017
Vulnerability identifier: NR17-06
The following New Relic agent versions are affected:
5.11.0 - 6.19.330
New Relic’s .NET agent captures a transaction trace to get detailed information about a single transaction including function calls, database calls, and external calls. By default, the agent should not collect the details of external calls (HTTP requests). Previous versions of the agent will collect the external http request parameters which may contain sensitive information. This release fixes the default behavior of the .NET agent to not collect the request parameters of external HTTP requests.
- Query parameters used in external HTTP requests made using HttpClient, WebRequest, or other library that uses these calls.
- Transaction Trace enabled (default setting)
Disable transaction trace in the .NET agent configuration.
