CVE-2011-4137

Priority
Description
The verify_exists functionality in the URLField implementation in Django
before 1.2.7 and 1.3.x before 1.3.1 relies on Python libraries that attempt
access to an arbitrary URL with no timeout, which allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via a URL associated
with (1) a slow response, (2) a completed TCP connection with no
application data sent, or (3) a large amount of application data, a related
issue to CVE-2011-1521.
