Summary0005172: Hide remote includes auth information
DescriptionWhen a remote include can not be accessed, the IRCd outputs a warning to all operators the file can not be read/found/accessed/... and using the cached version instead, this is great! However, when those links have a password protection (they CAN contain sensetive information like plain passwords in some cases) an oper *could* get access to passwords he/she is not entitled too because the output of the warning also gives the link username:password information wich should be masked for security reasons.

-irc.sever.example- *** [warning] /home/serverexample/unrealircd/conf/unrealircd.conf:1: include: error downloading 'https://MASKED:MASKED@server.example/irc-server-config/server.conf': Operation timed out after 15001 milliseconds with 0 out of 0 bytes received -- using cached version instead.
Steps To ReproduceHave a password protected include file in unrealircd.conf wich is not accessible.
Additional InformationThe MASKED:MASKED should be hidden or masked instead of showing the auth credentials.
TagsNo tags attached.
