Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 11.10 / 12.04 LTS / 12.10 : python-django regression (USN-1632-2)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

USN-1632-1 fixed a vulnerability in Django. The upstream fix
introduced testsuite failures when ADMINS and/or MANAGERS were defined
in settings.py. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

James Kettle discovered Django did not properly filter the Host HTTP
header when processing certain requests. An attacker could exploit
this to generate and display arbitrary URLs to users.

Solution :

Update the affected python-django package.

Risk factor :
