Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6414-1
October 04, 2023

python-django vulnerability

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

- Ubuntu 23.04
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS


Django could be made to consume resources or crash if it received specially
crafted network traffic.

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


Wenchao Li discovered that the Django Truncator function incorrectly
handled very long HTML input. A remote attacker could possibly use this
issue to cause Django to consume resources, leading to a denial of service.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 23.04:
   python3-django                  3:3.2.18-1ubuntu0.5

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
   python3-django                  2:3.2.12-2ubuntu1.9

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
   python3-django                  2:2.2.12-1ubuntu0.20

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