django CMS security updates

security 3.4 3.5 3.6 3.7

Security releases for django CMS versions 3.7.x, 3.6.x, 3.5.x and 3.4.x address medium-level vulnerabilities. We recommend updating to version 3.7.4, 3.6.1, 3.5.4 or 3.4.7.

The updated releases are now available from our GitHub repository and PyPIDivio users can update their django CMS installations via the Control Panel.


django CMS does not validate plugin_type parameter while generating the error messages for invalid plugin types. The vulnerability allows an attacker to execute arbitrary JavaScript code in the web browser of an affected user.

Please see the relevant commits on GitHub for more information about the vulnerability and mitigation.

Thanks to Sahil Dhar for the detailed report through our security email.

As ever, we remind our users and contributors that all security reports, patches and concerns be addressed only to our security team by email, at [email protected].


Please do not use GitHub, our email lists or IRC to report, address or otherwise discuss matters relating to security.
