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.
