Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) is an attack that forces an end user to execute unwanted actions on a web application in which they're currently authenticated. CSRF attacks specifically target state-changing requests, not theft of data, since the attacker has no way to see the response to the forged request. With a little help of social engineering (such as sending a link via email or chat), an attacker may trick the users of a web application into executing actions of the attacker's choosing. If the victim is a normal user, a successful CSRF attack can force the user to perform state changing requests like transferring funds, changing their email address, and so forth. If the victim is an administrative account, CSRF can compromise the entire web application.
The autoescape would be a protection against cross site scripting, not sql injection. Turning autoescape off would mean you trust what is in "text", wherever it came from, not to be malicious, (ie, it should be impossible for a user to create or modify what is in text). If that assumption is valid, then you are safe against cross site scripting, otherwise, that is a security hole.
Django Signals allows decoupled (independent) applications get notified when certain events occur elsewhere in the framework with the help of 'signal dispatcher'. The 'signal dispatcher' is Django's mechanism used to send and receive messages between different parts of an application which are instances of Signal, via the connect method.
Django uses request and response objects to pass state through the system. When a page is requested, Django creates an HttpRequest object that contains metadata about the request. Then Django loads the appropriate view, passing the
HttpRequest as the first argument to the view function. Each view is responsible for returning an
The term 'alias' is synonymous with a shortcut. Alias creation is a common pattern found in other popular utilities like `bash` shell. Aliases are used to create shorter commands that map to longer commands. Aliases enable more efficient workflows by requiring fewer keystrokes to execute a command.
