CVE Reference(s):

Description


Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Django, which can be exploited by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions and by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

1) An error when expanding XML entities can be exploited to consume large amounts of memory and cause a crash or hang via a specially crafted XML containing malicious attributes.

2) An error when processing certain XML data can be exploited to disclose certain information by sending specially crafted XML data including external entity references.

3) The administrative interface does not properly verify access permissions when accessing the history view, which can be exploited to view the history of any object accessible in the admin interface.

4) An error within formsets when handling form submissions can be exploited to consume large amounts of memory and render the application unusable by submitting specially crafted forms.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 1.3.6 and 1.4.4.


Solution:
Update to version 1.3.6 or 1.4.4.
