New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated python-django packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Jedediah Smith discovered that Django incorrectly handled underscores in WSGI headers. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to spoof headers in certain environments (CVE-2015-0219).

Mikko Ohtamaa discovered that Django incorrectly handled user-supplied redirect URLs. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to perform a cross-site scripting attack (CVE-2015-0220).

Alex Gaynor discovered that Django incorrectly handled reading files in django.views.static.serve(). A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Django to consume resources, resulting in a denial of service (CVE-2015-0221).

Keryn Knight discovered that Django incorrectly handled forms with ModelMultipleChoiceField. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a large number of SQL queries, resulting in a database denial of service. Note that this issue only affected python-django (CVE-2015-0222).

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the contents function in admin/helpers.py in Django before 1.7.6 and 1.8 before 1.8b2 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a model attribute in ModelAdmin.readonly_fields, as demonstrated by a \@property (CVE-2015-2241).

The utils.html.strip_tags function in Django 1.6.x before 1.6.11, 1.7.x before 1.7.7, and 1.8.x before 1.8c1, when using certain versions of Python, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) by increasing the length of the input string (CVE-2015-2316).

The utils.http.is_safe_url function in Django before 1.4.20, 1.5.x, 1.6.x before 1.6.11, 1.7.x before 1.7.7, and 1.8.x before 1.8c1 does not properly validate URLs, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a control character in a URL, as demonstrated by a \x08javascript: URL (CVE-2015-2317).

Solution

Update the affected packages.
