python-django vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 21.04

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in Django.

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


It was discovered that the Django URLValidator function incorrectly handled
newlines and tabs. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
perform a header injection attack. This issue only affected Ubuntu 20.04
LTS, Ubuntu 20.10, and Ubuntu 21.04. (CVE-2021-32052)

Rasmus Lerchedahl Petersen and Rasmus Wriedt Larsen discovered that Django
incorrectly handled path sanitation in admindocs. A remote attacker could
possibly use this issue to determine the existence of arbitrary files and
in certain configurations obtain their contents. (CVE-2021-33203)

It was discovered that Django incorrectly handled IPv4 addresses with
leading zeros. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to perform a
wide variety of attacks, including bypassing certain access restrictions.
