Package : python-django
CVE ID : CVE-2014-0472 CVE-2014-0473 CVE-2014-0474 CVE-2014-1418
CVE-2014-3730

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Django, a high-level Python
web development framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2014-0472

Benjamin Bach discovered that Django incorrectly handled dotted
Python paths when using the reverse() URL resolver function. An
attacker able to request a specially crafted view from a Django
application could use this issue to cause Django to import arbitrary
modules from the Python path, resulting in possible code execution.

CVE-2014-0473

Paul McMillan discovered that Django incorrectly cached certain
pages that contained CSRF cookies. A remote attacker could use this
flaw to acquire the CSRF token of a different user and bypass
intended CSRF protections in a Django application.

CVE-2014-0474

Michael Koziarski discovered that certain Django model field classes
did not properly perform type conversion on their arguments, which
allows remote attackers to obtain unexpected results.

CVE-2014-1418

Michael Nelson, Natalia Bidart and James Westby discovered that
cached data in Django could be served to a different session, or to
a user with no session at all. An attacker may use this to retrieve
private data or poison caches.

CVE-2014-3730

Peter Kuma and Gavin Wahl discovered that Django incorrectly
validated certain malformed URLs from user input. An attacker may
use this to cause unexpected redirects.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.2.3-3+squeeze10.
