Package : python-django
Version : 1:1.11.29-1+deb10u7
CVE ID : CVE-2023-24580
Debian Bug : 1031290

It was discovered that there was a denial-of-service vulnerability in
Django, a Python-based web development framework.

Passing certain inputs to multipart forms could have resulted in too
many open files or memory exhaustion, and provided a potential vector
for a denial-of-service attack.

The number of files parts parsed is now limited via a new
DATA_UPLOAD_MAX_NUMBER_FILES setting.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version
1:1.11.29-1+deb10u7.

We recommend that you upgrade your python-django packages.
