Seemant, are we affected by this?

Hi Robert & Security Co.,

This is a non-issue for django.  The person who raised the issue, brought it up to django's upstream and was shown their CSRF middleware to protect against these attacks (documented here: ).  The reporter even *agreed* with upstream that there was, indeed, no issue.  The reporter then went on to file the CVE.
Comment 3 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-11-07 20:43:44 UTC
Closing as INVALID then.

Upstream should notify Mitre if they contest the CVE entry and it will get noted.
