The verify_exists functionality in the URLField implementation in
Django before 1.2.7 and 1.3.x before 1.3.1 originally tests a URL's
validity through a HEAD request, but then uses a GET request for the
new target URL in the case of a redirect, which might allow remote
attackers to trigger arbitrary GET requests with an unintended source
IP address via a crafted Location header.
