Description

It was discovered that Django did not properly validate HTTP requests that contain an X-Requested-With header. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to perform cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks. (CVE-2011-0696)

It was discovered that Django did not properly sanitize its input when performing file uploads, resulting in cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities. With cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if a user were tricked into viewing server output during a crafted server request, a remote attacker could exploit this to modify the contents, or steal confidential data, within the same domain. (CVE-2011-0697).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
