Security Update: NR18-01 for Python Agent



An internal audit of the Python High Security Mode revealed that the agent could send additional data to New Relic by customizing message params with the tracing APIs. Custom parameters may be sent to New Relic if a developer is passing additional parameters using either the function trace API or the message trace API. These should be disabled when High Security Mode is enabled.


Mitigating factors
This only affects customers that have enabled High Security Mode with the Python agent and a developer is adding additional information to the tracing API.
