The conformal covariance of correlation functions is checked in the second-order transition induced by random bonds in the two-dimensional eight-state Potts model. The decay of correlations is obtained via transfer matrix calculations in a cylinder geometry, and large-scale Monte Carlo simulations provide access to the correlations and the profiles inside a square with free or fixed boundary conditions. In both geometries, conformal transformations constrain the form of the spatial dependence, leading to accurate determinations of the order parameter scaling index, in good agreement with previous independent determinations obtained through standard techniques. The energy density exponent is also computed.
