Description

django.contrib.auth.forms.AuthenticationForm in Django 2.0 before 2.0.2, and 1.11.8 and 1.11.9, allows remote attackers to obtain potentially sensitive information by leveraging data exposure from the confirm_login_allowed() method, as demonstrated by discovering whether a user account is inactive.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
