Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

It was discovered that there was a potential directory traversal issue in Django, a Python-based web development framework.

The vulnerability could have been exploited by maliciously crafted filenames. However, the upload handlers built into Django itself were not affected.

For Debian 9 'Stretch', this problem has been fixed in version 1:1.10.7-2+deb9u12.

We recommend that you upgrade your python-django packages.

For the detailed security status of python-django please refer to its security tracker page at:
https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/python-django

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
