Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Updated python-django packages fix security vulnerabilities :

in WSGI headers. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
spoof headers in certain environments (CVE-2015-0219).

redirect URLs. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
perform a cross-site scripting attack (CVE-2015-0220).
