Description Vincent Danen 2014-04-23 16:56:56 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2014-0473 to
the following vulnerability:

Name: CVE-2014-0473
URL: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0473
Assigned: 20131219
Reference: https://www.djangoproject.com/weblog/2014/apr/21/security/

The caching framework in Django before 1.4.11, 1.5.x before 1.5.6,
1.6.x before 1.6.3, and 1.7.x before 1.7 beta 2 reuses a cached CSRF
token for all anonymous users, which allows remote attackers to bypass
CSRF protections by reading the CSRF cookie for anonymous users.
