    Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201907-3
    =========================================
    
    Severity: High
    Date    : 2019-07-06
    CVE-ID  : CVE-2019-12781
    Package : python2-django
    Type    : silent downgrade
    Remote  : Yes
    Link    : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-1001
    
    Summary
    =======
    
    The package python2-django before version 1.11.22-1 is vulnerable to
    silent downgrade.
    
    Resolution
    ==========
    
    Upgrade to 1.11.22-1.
    
    # pacman -Syu "python2-django>=1.11.22-1"
    
    The problem has been fixed upstream in version 1.11.22.
    
    Workaround
    ==========
    
    None.
    
    Description
    ===========
    
    An HTTP request is not redirected to HTTPS when the
    SECURE_PROXY_SSL_HEADER and SECURE_SSL_REDIRECT settings are used, and
    the proxy connects to Django via HTTPS. In other words,
    django.http.HttpRequest.scheme has incorrect behavior when a client
    uses HTTP.
    
    Impact
    ======
    
    A remote attacker is able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack if a
    HTTP request is not redirected to HTTPS.
