    python-django vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 19.10
    - Ubuntu 19.04
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Django accounts could be hijacked through password reset requests.
    
    Software Description:
    - python-django: High-level Python web development framework
    
    Details:
    
    Simon Charette discovered that the password reset functionality in
    Django used a Unicode case insensitive query to retrieve accounts
    associated with an email address. An attacker could possibly use this
    to obtain password reset tokens and hijack accounts.
