Authentication credentails logged in clear text

Module: grunt-gh-pages

Vulnerable: <=0.9.1
Patched: >=1.0.0


A common setup to deploy to gh-pages on every commit via a CI system is to expose a github token to ENV and to use it directly in the auth part of the url.

In module versions < 0.9.1 the auth portion of the url is outputted as part of the grunt tasks logging function. If this output is publicly available then the credentials should be considered compromised.


  • Upgrade to version 1.0.0 or greater.
  • Consider any credentials used with these modules compromised and rotate those credentials.
