Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Adam Baldwin discovered that Django did not properly validate query
string lookups. This could be exploited to provide an information leak
to an attacker with admin privilieges. (CVE-2010-4534)

Paul McMillan discovered that Django did not validate the length of
the token used when generating a password reset. An attacker could
exploit this to cause a denial of service via resource exhaustion.
(CVE-2010-4535).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected python-django and / or python-django-doc packages.
