Decription: Input Validation Flaw in Administrator Add/Change Popup Lets Remote Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks

The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target administrative user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Django software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

The administrator's add/change related popup is affected.
