FreeBSD : django -- XSS vulnerability (3ff95dd3-c291-11df-b0dc-00215c6a37bb)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Django project reports :

The provided template tag for inserting the CSRF token into forms --
{% csrf_token %} -- explicitly trusts the cookie value, and displays
it as-is. Thus, an attacker who is able to tamper with the value of
the CSRF cookie can cause arbitrary content to be inserted, unescaped,
into the outgoing HTML of the form, enabling cross-site scripting
(XSS) attacks.
