Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4264-1
February 04, 2020

python-django vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS


Django could be vulnerable to SQL injection attacks.

Software Description:
- python-django: High-level Python web development framework


Simon Charette discovered that Django incorrectly handled input in the
PostgreSQL module. A remote attacker could possibly use this to perform SQL
injection attacks.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 19.10:
  python-django                   1:1.11.22-1ubuntu1.2
  python3-django                  1:1.11.22-1ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  python-django                   1:1.11.11-1ubuntu1.7
  python3-django                  1:1.11.11-1ubuntu1.7

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
