Vendor Patch

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Django, which can be exploited by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions or malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

1) The bin/compile-messages.py script does not correctly escape the filename of .po message files. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary shell commands via a maliciously named .po file.

2) The authentication middleware incorrectly caches the "request.user" parameter between requests, which could be exploited to e.g. access pages as another user.

The vulnerabilities are reported in version 0.95. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Update to version 0.95.1.
