How to fix?

Upgrade apache-superset to version 0.37.1 or higher.


apache-superset is a modern, enterprise-ready business intelligence web application.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Remote Code Execution (RCE). An authenticated user could craft requests via a number of templated text fields in the product that would allow arbitrary access to Python’s os package in the web application process. It is possible for an authenticated user to list and access files, environment variables, and process information. Additionally, it is possible to set environment variables for the current process, create and update files in folders writable by the web process, and execute arbitrary programs accessible by the web process. All other operations available to the os package in Python are also available.
