Ubuntu 18.04 LTS / 20.04 LTS / 22.04 LTS / 23.04 : Django vulnerability (USN-6054-1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 175083

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security update.

Description

The remote Ubuntu 18.04 LTS / 20.04 LTS / 22.04 LTS / 22.10 / 23.04 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the USN-6054-1 advisory.

- In Django 3.2 before 3.2.19, 4.x before 4.1.9, and 4.2 before 4.2.1, it was possible to bypass validation when using one form field to upload multiple files. This multiple upload has never been supported by forms.FileField or forms.ImageField (only the last uploaded file was validated). However, Django's Uploading multiple files documentation suggested otherwise. (CVE-2023-31047)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Update the affected python-django, python-django-common and / or python3-django packages.
