中文版本(Chinese version)

Django released a security update on August 1, 2019, which fixes a SQL injection vulnerability in the two model fields of JSONField and HStoreField.

Reference link:

The vulnerability requires the developer to use JSONField/HStoreField; moreover, the field name of the queryset can be controlled. Django's built-in application Django-Admin is affected, which gives us an easy way to reproduce the vulnerability.

Docker-compose build
Docker-compose up -d
