CVE-2013-6044

Status Candidate

Overview

The is_safe_url function in utils/http.py in Django 1.4.x before 1.4.6, 1.5.x before 1.5.2, and 1.6 before beta 2 treats a URL's scheme as safe even if it is not HTTP or HTTPS, which might introduce cross-site scripting (XSS) or other vulnerabilities into Django applications that use this function, as demonstrated by "the login view in django.contrib.auth.views" and the javascript: scheme.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-1521-01
Posted Nov 14, 2013
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-1521-01 - Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and a clean, pragmatic design. It focuses on automating as much as possible and adhering to the DRY principle. It was discovered that the django.utils.http.is_safe_url() function considered any URL that used a scheme other than HTTP or HTTPS as safe. An attacker could potentially use this flaw to perform cross-site scripting attacks. A directory traversal flaw was found in Django's "ssi" template tag, which takes a file path as input and outputs that file's contents. An attacker able to alter templates that made use of the "ssi" tag on a site could use this flaw to access any local files accessible to Django.
