Updated python-django packages fix security vulnerabilities :
Jedediah Smith discovered that Django incorrectly handled underscores
in WSGI headers. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
spoof headers in certain environments (CVE-2015-0219).
Mikko Ohtamaa discovered that Django incorrectly handled user-supplied
redirect URLs. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
perform a cross-site scripting attack (CVE-2015-0220).
Alex Gaynor discovered that Django incorrectly handled reading files
in django.views.static.serve(). A remote attacker could possibly use
this issue to cause Django to consume resources, resulting in a denial
of service (CVE-2015-0221).

service (infinite loop) by increasing the length of the input string
The utils.http.is_safe_url function in Django before 1.4.20, 1.5.x,
1.6.x before 1.6.11, 1.7.x before 1.7.7, and 1.8.x before 1.8c1 does
not properly validate URLs, which allows remote attackers to conduct
cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a control character in a URL,
