Description Albert W. Hopkins 2010-09-09 13:42:42 UTC
FYI there is an security issue found in django 1.2.1.  A fix has been applied to django 1.2.2:
Comment 1 Alex Legler (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2010-09-09 14:17:39 UTC
Summary from $URL:
The provided template tag for inserting the CSRF token into forms -- {% csrf_token %} -- explicitly trusts the cookie value, and displays it as-is. Thus, an attacker who is able to tamper with the value of the CSRF cookie can cause arbitrary content to be inserted, unescaped, into the outgoing HTML of the form, enabling cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

Affected versions:
=dev-python/django-1.2* (~arch only)
Comment 2 Albert W. Hopkins 2010-09-11 22:34:39 UTC
Django 1.2.3 has been released. This release deals with some issues caused by Django 1.2.2.

Comment 3 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-09-22 19:39:57 UTC
