Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Daniel Chatfield discovered that python-django, a high-level Python web development framework, incorrectly handled user-supplied redirect URLs. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform a cross-site scripting attack.

Solution

Upgrade the python-django packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.5-1+deb7u11.
