    Simon Charette reported that the password reset functionality in Django,
    a high-level Python web development framework, uses a Unicode
    case-insensitive query to retrieve accounts matching the email address
    requesting the password reset. An attacker can take advantage of this
    flaw to potentially retrieve password reset tokens and hijack accounts.
