Severity: high

Downloads Resources over HTTP



Affected versions of haxe insecurely download an executable over an unencrypted HTTP connection.

In scenarios where an attacker has a privileged network position, it is possible to intercept the response and replace the executable with a malicious one, resulting in code execution on the system running haxe.


Update to version 5.0.10 or later.
