How to fix?

Upgrade apache-superset to version 2.1.0 or higher.


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

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Insecure Default Initialization of Resource due to the use of a default SECRET_KEY that could be abused by attackers to authenticate and access unauthorized resources on internet-exposed installations.

Impact: An attacker who has knowledge of the secret key can sign in to the vulnerable servers as an administrator by forging a session cookie and can seize control of the systems.

Note: This issue does not affect configurations in which the default value for SECRET_KEY config was changed.
