Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2020-06-03 16:41:32 UTC
In cases where a memcached backend does not perform key validation, passing malformed cache keys could result in a key collision, and potential data leakage. In order to avoid this vulnerability, key validation is added to the memcached cache backends.

Comment 14 Hardik Vyas 2020-06-30 13:09:20 UTC
Statement:

Red Hat Satellite 6 ships affected python-django, however, it does not use memcached implementation in product code hence not vulnerable to this flaw.

Red Hat Update Infrastructure 3 ships an affected version of python-django, however it does not use memcached as a cache backend and it is not vulnerable to this flaw.

Red Hat Ceph Storage(RHCS) ships an affected version of python-django used with calamari and graphite which are no longer supported, hence the django package will not be fixed for RHCS.
