Description

USN-1632-1 fixed a vulnerability in Django. The upstream fix introduced testsuite failures when ADMINS and/or MANAGERS were defined in settings.py. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

James Kettle discovered Django did not properly filter the Host HTTP header when processing certain requests. An attacker could exploit this to generate and display arbitrary URLs to users.

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.
