GitHub user carlosduclos opened an issue:

    Regular expression in `scrub` produces incorrect results if URL path portion contains
a bare '@'

    [Original issue](
    In, (.*)@ is being used instead
of the non-greedy (.*?)@ or ([^@]*)@ – this matches up until the last occurrence of @, rather
than the first. If the URL's path component contains a bare @, the entire hostname and a portion
of the path could be stripped. For example, scrub('https://foo:bar@host/foo/bar/@quux') will
yield "https://XXXXXX:XXXXXX@quux" instead of "https://XXXXXX:XXXXXX@host/foo/bar/@quux".
    I can't see any way to exploit this beyond potentially hiding URL contents in logs, but
admittedly haven't investigated closely.
