1.4.0 – 2020-04-07


  • Prevent users from receiving an invalid authority parsed from a malicious URL. Previously we did not stop parsing the authority section at the first backslash (\\) character. As a result, it was possible to trick our parser into parsing up to the first forward-slash (/) and thus generating an invalid authority.
