Django 3.2.12 release notes

February 1, 2022

Django 3.2.12 fixes two security issues with severity “medium” in 3.2.11.

CVE-2022-22818: Possible XSS via {% debug %} template tag

The {% debug %} template tag didn’t properly encode the current context, posing an XSS attack vector.

In order to avoid this vulnerability, {% debug %} no longer outputs information when the DEBUG setting is False, and it ensures all context variables are correctly escaped when the DEBUG setting is True.

CVE-2022-23833: Denial-of-service possibility in file uploads

Passing certain inputs to multipart forms could result in an infinite loop when parsing files.
