Highlight may record passwords on customer deployments when a password html input is switched to
type="password" inputs. A customer may assume that switching to
type="text" would also not record this input; hence, they would not add additional
highlight-mask css-class obfuscation to this part of the DOM, resulting in unintentional recording of a password value when a
Show Password button is used.

This patch tracks changes to the
type attribute of an input to ensure an input that used to be a
type="password" continues to be obfuscated.
We have deployed a change to our data ingest to obfuscate passwords server side from older clients. This means that upgrading to the latest version of highlight.run is not necessary but recommended to prevent potential network transfer of recorded password data to our backend.
