Secunia Advisory SA42715

Where:

From remote

Impact:

Exposure of sensitive information, DoS

Solution Status:

Vendor Patch

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Two security issues have been reported in Django, which can be exploited by malicious users to disclose potentially sensitive information and by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

1) The Django "django.contrib.admin" administrative interface support does not properly filter lookup arguments passed via the query string, which can be exploited to e.g. gain access to sensitive information.

Successful exploitation of this security issue requires access to the administrative interface.

2) The Django "django.contrib.auth" authentication support does not restrict the maximum size of the base36 integer part of password reset tokens, which can cause a high CPU consumption by sending multiple specially crafted password reset tokens.


Solution:
Update to version 1.1.3 or 1.2.4.

Provided and/or discovered by:
1) Adam Baldwin
2) The vendor credits Paul McMillan
