Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : python-django (MDVSA-2012:143)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

The (1) django.http.HttpResponseRedirect and (2)
django.http.HttpResponsePermanentRedirect classes in Django before
1.3.2 and 1.4.x before 1.4.1 do not validate the scheme of a redirect
target, which might allow remote attackers to conduct cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks via a data: URL (CVE-2012-3442).

The django.forms.ImageField class in the form system in Django before
1.3.2 and 1.4.x before 1.4.1 completely decompresses image data during
image validation, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (memory consumption) by uploading an image file
(CVE-2012-3443).

The get_image_dimensions function in the image-handling functionality
in Django before 1.3.2 and 1.4.x before 1.4.1 uses a constant chunk
size in all attempts to determine dimensions, which allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (process or thread consumption)
via a large TIFF image (CVE-2012-3444).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the 1.3.3 version which is
not vulnerable to these issues.
