FreeBSD : django -- information leak vulnerability (11c52bc6-97aa-11e5-b8df-14dae9d210b8)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Tim Graham reports :

If an application allows users to specify an unvalidated format for
dates and passes this format to the date filter, e.g. {{
last_updated|date:user_date_format }}, then a malicious user could
obtain any secret in the application's settings by specifying a
settings key instead of a date format. e.g. 'SECRET_KEY' instead of
'j/m/Y'.
