Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : python-sqlalchemy (MDVSA-2012:059)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

It was discovered that SQLAlchemy did not sanitize values for the
limit and offset keywords for SQL select statements. If an application
using SQLAlchemy accepted values for these keywords, and did not
filter or sanitize them before passing them to SQLAlchemy, it could
allow an attacker to perform a SQL injection attack against the
application (CVE-2012-0805).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected python-sqlalchemy 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)
