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

Description :

It was discovered that Django did not properly validate HTTP requests
that contain an X-Requested-With header. An attacker could exploit
this vulnerability to perform cross-site request forgery (CSRF)
attacks. (CVE-2011-0696)

It was discovered that Django did not properly sanitize its input when
performing file uploads, resulting in cross-site scripting (XSS)
vulnerabilities. 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. (CVE-2011-0697).

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.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.9
