Ubuntu Security Notice 1632-2 - USN-1632-1 fixed a vulnerability in Django. The upstream fix introduced testsuite failures when ADMINS and/or MANAGERS were defined in settings.py. This update fixes the problem. James Kettle discovered Django did not properly filter the Host HTTP header when processing certain requests. An attacker could exploit this to generate and display arbitrary URLs to users. Various other issues were also addressed.
