Subject: aria2 leaks passwords for HTTP based authentication

Hi List,

aria2 is a lightweight multi-protocol command-line utility which leaks data
or potential password via `--log=` attribute for HTTP based authentication
which might allow local attackers to obtain sensitive information. This
issue is somewhat similar to (2019/01/01/1).

It was observed that URL's which gets downloaded via `--log=` attribute
store’s sensitive information.

Example: aria2c --log=file

Later CVE-2019-3500 was assigned to this.

Thank you
