The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
John Dickinson discovered that Swift did not properly quote the
WWW-Authenticate header value. If a user were tricked into navigating
to a malicious Swift URL, an attacker could conduct cross-site
scripting attacks. With cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if a
user were tricked into viewing server output during a crafted server
request, a remote attacker could exploit this to modify the contents,
or steal confidential data, within the same domain.
Update the affected python-swift package.
