Debian DLA-555-1 : python-django security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 92501
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

It was discovered that Django, a high-level Python web development framework, is prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the admin's add/change related popup and debug view.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.4.5-1+deb7u17.

We recommend that you upgrade your python-django packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected python-django, and python-django-doc packages.
