CVE-2024-39329

Published: 9 July 2024

An issue was discovered in Django 5.0 before 5.0.7 and 4.2 before 4.2.14. The django.contrib.auth.backends.ModelBackend.authenticate() method allows remote attackers to enumerate users via a timing attack involving login requests for users with an unusable password.

Notes

Priority reason:
requires user accounts with unusable passwords

upstream advises that only versions 4.2, 5.0 and 5.1 (plus main
development branch) are affected but it is likely earlier versions may
also be affected but upstream do not mention this as they are no longer
maintained by them

Priority
