Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : python-django (MDVSA-2011:031)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in
python-django :

Django 1.1.x before 1.1.4 and 1.2.x before 1.2.5 does not properly
validate HTTP requests that contain an X-Requested-With header, which
makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct cross-site request
forgery (CSRF) attacks via forged AJAX requests that leverage a
combination of browser plugins and redirects, a related issue to
CVE-2011-0447 (CVE-2011-0696).

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Django 1.1.x before 1.1.4
and 1.2.x before 1.2.5 might allow remote attackers to inject
arbitrary web script or HTML via a filename associated with a file
upload (CVE-2011-0697).

Directory traversal vulnerability in Django 1.1.x before 1.1.4 and
1.2.x before 1.2.5 on Windows might allow remote attackers to read or
execute files via a / (slash) character in a key in a session cookie,
related to session replays (CVE-2011-0698).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the 1.1.4 version which is
not vulnerable to these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected python-django package.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.5
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : true
