DESCRIPTION:
Two security issues have been reported in Django, which can be
exploited by malicious users to disclose potentially sensitive
information and by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of
Service).

1) The Django "django.contrib.admin" administrative interface support
does not properly filter lookup arguments passed via the query string,
which can be exploited to e.g. gain access to sensitive information.

Successful exploitation of this security issue requires access to the
administrative interface.

2) The Djanog "django.contrib.auth" authentication support does not
restrict the maximum size of the base36 integer part of password
reset tokens, which can cause a high CPU consumption by sending
multiple specially crafted password reset tokens.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 1.1.3 or 1.2.4.
