Debian Security Advisory
DLA-2622-1 python-django -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 09 Apr 2021
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2021-28658.
- More information:
It was discovered that there was a potential directory traversal issue in Django, a Python-based web development framework.
The vulnerability could have been exploited by maliciously crafted filenames. However, the upload handlers built into Django itself were not affected.
In Django 2.2 before 2.2.20, 3.0 before 3.0.14, and 3.1 before 3.1.8, MultiPartParser allowed directory traversal via uploaded files with suitably crafted file names. Built-in upload handlers were not affected by this vulnerability.
For Debian 9
Stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 1:1.10.7-2+deb9u12.
We recommend that you upgrade your python-django packages.
