FreeBSD : django -- XSS vulnerability (f49ba347-2190-11dd-907c-001c2514716c)

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Django project reports :

The Django administration application will, when accessed by a user
who is not sufficiently authenticated, display a login form and ask
the user to provide the necessary credentials before displaying the
requested page. This form will be submitted to the URL the user
attempted to access, by supplying the current request path as the
value of the form's 'action' attribute.

The value of the request path was not being escaped, creating an
opportunity for a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack by leading a user
to a URL which contained URL-encoded HTML and/or JavaScript in the
request path.
