USN-5653-1: Django vulnerability

4 October 2022

Django could be made to crash if it received specially crafted network traffic.




Benjamin Balder Bach discovered that Django incorrectly handled certain
internationalized URLs. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
cause Django to crash, resulting in a denial of service.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 22.04
Ubuntu 20.04

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