A vulnerability has been reported in Django, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
The vulnerability is caused due to the Django administration application not performing any validity checks to verify requests when re-authenticating the user. This can be exploited to delete and edit data when a not logged-in user e.g. visits a malicious web site and is then enticed to log in to the application.
The vulnerability is reported in 0.91.x versions prior to 0.91.3, 0.95.x versions prior to 0.95.4, and 0.96.x versions prior to 0.96.3.
Solution: Update to version 0.91.3, 0.95.4, or 0.96.3.
