Description

Details for this vulnerability have not been published by NIST at this point. Descriptions from software vendor advisories for this issue are provided below.

From VID-B805D7B4-9C0C-11E9-97F0-000C29E96DB4:

Django security releases issued:

When deployed behind a reverse-proxy connecting to Django via HTTPS,

django.http.HttpRequest.scheme would incorrectly detect client requests

made via HTTP as using HTTPS. This entails incorrect results for is_secure(),

and build_absolute_uri(), and that HTTP requests would not be redirected to

HTTPS in accordance with SECURE_SSL_REDIRECT.
