How to fix?

Upgrade apache-superset to version 2.1.1 or higher.

Overview

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

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Input Validation due to allowing SQLite database connections to be incorrectly registered when an attacker uses alternative driver names like sqlite+pysqlite or by using database imports. This could lead to unexpected file creation on Superset webservers.

Note:

If Apache Superset is using a SQLite database for its metadata (not advised for production use) it could result in more severe vulnerabilities related to confidentiality and integrity.
