Vulnerability information

New Relic’s .NET error collection captures information about uncaught exceptions and sends them to New Relic. If High Security Mode is enabled, the agent should not capture details of the error messages. This release fixes the agent for error traces and error events so that the error message is not sent to New Relic when High Security Mode is enabled.
