    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.
