Django 1.10.8 release notes

September 5, 2017

Django 1.10.8 fixes a security issue in 1.10.7.

CVE-2017-12794: Possible XSS in traceback section of technical 500 debug page

In older versions, HTML autoescaping was disabled in a portion of the template for the technical 500 debug page. Given the right circumstances, this allowed a cross-site scripting attack. This vulnerability shouldn’t affect most production sites since you shouldn’t run with DEBUG = True (which makes this page accessible) in your production settings.
