Package : python-django
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2012-4520 CVE-2013-0305 CVE-2013-0306 CVE-2013-1665
Debian Bug : 701186 696535 691145

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in python-django, a high-level
python web development framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:


CVE-2012-4520

James Kettle discovered that django did not properly filter the HTTP
Host header when processing certain requests. An attacker could exploit
this to generate and cause parts of django, particularly the
password-reset mechanism, to display arbitrary URLs to users.

CVE-2013-0305

Orange Tsai discovered that the bundled administrative interface
of django could expose supposedly-hidden information via its history
log.

CVE-2013-0306

Mozilla discovered that an attacker can abuse django's tracking of
the number of forms in a formset to cause a denial-of-service attack
due to extreme memory consumption.

CVE-2013-1665

Michael Koziarski discovered that django's XML deserialization is
vulnerable to entity-expansion and external-entity/DTD attacks.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.2.3-3+squeeze5.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your python-django packages.
