GLSA-201209-16 : SQLAlchemy: SQL injection
High Nessus Plugin ID 62345
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201209-16 (SQLAlchemy: SQL injection)
SQLAlchemy does not properly sanitize input passed from the “limit”
and “offset” keywords to the select() function before using it in an SQL query.
A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary SQL statements.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll SQLAlchemy users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-python/sqlalchemy-0.7.4'
