Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2016-2017 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Marti Raudsepp discovered that Django incorrectly used a hardcoded
password when running tests on an Oracle database. A remote attacker
could possibly connect to the database while the tests are running and
prevent the test user with the hardcoded password from being removed.
(CVE-2016-9013)

Aymeric Augustin discovered that Django incorrectly validated hosts
when being run with the debug setting enabled. A remote attacker could
possibly use this issue to perform DNS rebinding attacks.
(CVE-2016-9014).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Update the affected python-django and / or python3-django packages.
