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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 49273


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


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.


Update the affected packages.
