[ASA-201808-3] python2-django: open redirect
Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201808-3 ========================================= Severity: Medium Date : 2018-08-03 CVE-ID : CVE-2018-14574 Package : python2-django Type : open redirect Remote : Yes Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-746 Summary ======= The package python2-django before version 1.11.15-1 is vulnerable to open redirect. Resolution ========== Upgrade to 1.11.15-1. # pacman -Syu "python2-django>=1.11.15-1" The problem has been fixed upstream in version 1.11.15. Workaround ========== Disable the APPEND_SLASH setting. Description =========== If the django.middleware.common.CommonMiddleware and the APPEND_SLASH setting are both enabled, and if the project has a URL pattern that accepts any path ending in a slash (many content management systems have such a pattern), then a request to a maliciously crafted URL of that site could lead to a redirect to another site, enabling phishing and other attacks. Impact ====== A remote attacker is able to redirect a user to an attacker-controlled website.
