CVE-2018-7536 log

Severity Medium
Remote Yes
Type Denial of service
The django.utils.html.urlize() function was extremely slow to evaluate certain inputs due to catastrophic backtracking vulnerabilities in two regular expressions. The urlize() function is used to implement the urlize and urlizetrunc template filters, which were thus vulnerable. The problematic regular expressions are replaced with parsing logic that behaves similarly.
