CVE Reference:   CVE-2008-2302   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  May 30 2008
Original Entry Date:  May 15 2008
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information

Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Django. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The administrative login page does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the 'action' parameter before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Django software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Django software, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
Solution:   The vendor has issued fixed versions (0.91.2, 0.95.3, 0.96.2):

http://media.djangoproject.com/releases/0.96/Django-0.96.2.tar.gz
http://media.djangoproject.com/releases/0.95/Django-0.95.3.tar.gz
http://media.djangoproject.com/releases/0.91/Django-0.91.2.tar.gz
