Debian DSA-2449-1 : sqlalchemy - missing input sanitization
High Nessus Plugin ID 58728
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that SQLAlchemy, a SQL toolkit and object relational mapper for Python, is not sanitizing input passed to the limit/offset keywords to select() as well as the value passed to select.limit()/offset(). This allows an attacker to perform SQL injection attacks against applications using SQLAlchemy that do not implement their own filtering.
SolutionUpgrade the sqlalchemy packages.
For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 0.6.3-3+squeeze1.
