Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : python-django (MDVSA-2011:031)
High Nessus Plugin ID 52036
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionMultiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in python-django :
Django 1.1.x before 1.1.4 and 1.2.x before 1.2.5 does not properly validate HTTP requests that contain an X-Requested-With header, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks via forged AJAX requests that leverage a combination of browser plugins and redirects, a related issue to CVE-2011-0447 (CVE-2011-0696).
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Django 1.1.x before 1.1.4 and 1.2.x before 1.2.5 might allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a filename associated with a file upload (CVE-2011-0697).
Directory traversal vulnerability in Django 1.1.x before 1.1.4 and 1.2.x before 1.2.5 on Windows might allow remote attackers to read or execute files via a / (slash) character in a key in a session cookie, related to session replays (CVE-2011-0698).
The updated packages have been upgraded to the 1.1.4 version which is not vulnerable to these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected python-django package.
