Description

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.
