It was discovered that Jinja2 did not properly handle bytecode cache
files stored in the system's temporary directory. A local attacker
could use this flaw to alter the output of an application using Jinja2
and FileSystemBytecodeCache, and potentially execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of that application. (CVE-2014-1402)
For the update to take effect, all applications using python-jinja2
must be restarted.
