CVE-2018-14574: Open redirect possibility in CommonMiddleware
If the django.middleware.common.CommonMiddleware and the
APPEND_SLASH setting are both enabled, and if the project has a URL
pattern that accepts any path ending in a slash (many content management
systems have such a pattern), then a request to a maliciously crafted
URL of that site could lead to a redirect to another site, enabling
phishing and other attacks.
Thanks Andreas Hug for reporting this issue.
