Django 3.2.4 release notes¶
June 2, 2021
Django 3.2.4 fixes two security issues and several bugs in 3.2.3.

Staff members could use the
TemplateDetailView view to check the existence of arbitrary files.
Additionally, if (and only if) the default admindocs templates have been
customized by the developers to also expose the file contents, then not only
the existence but also the file contents would have been exposed.
As a mitigation, path sanitation is now applied and only files within the template root directories can be loaded.
CVE-2021-33571: Possible indeterminate SSRF, RFI, and LFI attacks since validators accepted leading zeros in IPv4 addresses¶
validate_ipv46_address() didn’t prohibit leading
zeros in octal literals. If you used such values you could suffer from
indeterminate SSRF, RFI, and LFI attacks.
validate_ipv46_address() validators were not
affected on Python 3.9.5+.
