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

Upstream reported that there was a potential vulnerability in
django.utils.encoding.uri_to_iri(). This method was subject to
potential DoS attack via certain inputs with a very large number of
Unicode characters.
