Package        : python-django
CVE ID         : CVE-2019-19844
Debian Bug     : 946937

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.
