Debian disputes this because they view it as an insecure
configuration; product documentation covers a CSRF protection module
that's available as part of the Django distribution.  For CVE, we
still include it because it's related to a default configuration, even
if the "blame" is squarely on the administrator.

Name: CVE-2007-5828
Status: Candidate
URL: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-5828
Reference: BUGTRAQ:20071029 Django 0.96 (stable) Admin Panel CSRF
Reference: URL:http://www.securityfocus.com/archive/1/archive/1/482983/100/0/threaded


Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in the admin panel in
Django 0.96 allows remote attackers to change passwords of arbitrary
users via a request to admin/auth/user/1/password/.  NOTE: this issue
has been disputed by Debian, since product documentation includes a
recommendation for a CSRF protection module that is included with the
product.  However, CVE considers this an issue because the default
configuration does not use this module.
