Exposures project identifies the following problems:


CVE-2012-4520

this to generate and cause parts of django, particularly the
password-reset mechanism, to display arbitrary URLs to users.

Orange Tsai discovered that the bundled administrative interface
of django could expose supposedly-hidden information via its history

the number of forms in a formset to cause a denial-of-service attack
due to extreme memory consumption.

vulnerable to entity-expansion and external-entity/DTD attacks.
