19 December 2019

Django accounts could be hijacked through password reset requests.

Releases

Packages

Details

Simon Charette discovered that the password reset functionality in
Django used a Unicode case insensitive query to retrieve accounts
associated with an email address. An attacker could possibly use this
to obtain password reset tokens and hijack accounts.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 19.10
Ubuntu 19.04
Ubuntu 18.04
Ubuntu 16.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
