Package        : python-django
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-7536 CVE-2018-7537

James Davis discovered two issues in Django, a high-level Python web
development framework, that can lead to a denial-of-service attack.
An attacker with control on the input of the django.utils.html.urlize()
function or django.utils.text.Truncator's chars() and words() methods
could craft a string that might stuck the execution of the application.
 
For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
in version 1.7.11-1+deb8u3.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:1.10.7-2+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your python-django packages.
