An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Xamarin.Mac when authentication information is inadvertently exposed in a redirect when the CFNetworkHandler or MessageHandler for HttpClient are used. The NSUrlSessionHandler and the managed HttpMessageHandler are not affected.
An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could use the information to further compromise the web application.
The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how Xamarin.Mac handles redirects.
