A vulnerability has been reported in Django, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
The vulnerability is caused due to the Django internationalization system ("i18n") incorrectly processing HTTP headers. This can be exploited to allocate large amounts of memory by sending specially crafted HTTP "Accept-Language" requests.
Successful exploitation requires that the "USE_I18N" option and the "i18n" middleware component are enabled.
The vulnerability is reported in version 0.91, 0.95, 0.95.1 and 0.96.

Secunia is explaining the vulnerability, not seeking thoughts or opinions.
If, however, someone has working knowledge of the vulnerability and has pertinent information regarding it, then it is appropriate to post here. Otherwise it might be better to post opinions in the "Open Discussions" part of the forum.
Hope this tip helps!
