Debian DSA-5186-1 : djangorestframework - security update

Description

The remote Debian 10 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the dsa-5186 advisory. - A flaw was found in Django REST Framework versions before 3.12.0 and before 3.11.2. When using the browseable API viewer, Django REST Framework fails to properly escape certain strings that can come from user input. This allows a user who can control those strings to inject malicious <script> tags, leading to a cross-site-scripting (XSS) vulnerability. (CVE-2020-25626) Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
