DSA-2740-2 python-django -- cross-site scripting vulnerability

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
4 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N) August 23, 2013 August 28, 2013 July 04, 2017

Description

The is_safe_url function in utils/http.py in Django 1.4.x before 1.4.6, 1.5.x before 1.5.2, and 1.6 before beta 2 treats a URL's scheme as safe even if it is not HTTP or HTTPS, which might introduce cross-site scripting (XSS) or other vulnerabilities into Django applications that use this function, as demonstrated by "the login view in django.contrib.auth.views" and the javascript: scheme.
