-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2012:143 _______________________________________________________________________ Package : python-django Date : August 23, 2012 Affected: 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in python-django: The (1) django.http.HttpResponseRedirect and (2) django.http.HttpResponsePermanentRedirect classes in Django before 1.3.2 and 1.4.x before 1.4.1 do not validate the scheme of a redirect target, which might allow remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a data: URL (CVE-2012-3442). The django.forms.ImageField class in the form system in Django before 1.3.2 and 1.4.x before 1.4.1 completely decompresses image data during image validation, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by uploading an image file (CVE-2012-3443). The get_image_dimensions function in the image-handling functionality in Django before 1.3.2 and 1.4.x before 1.4.1 uses a constant chunk size in all attempts to determine dimensions, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (process or thread consumption) via a large TIFF image (CVE-2012-3444). The updated packages have been upgraded to the 1.3.3 version which is not vulnerable to these issues. _______________________________________________________________________ References: _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Linux 2011: 68725d98b343053372748fc043a9acf2 2011/i586/python-django-1.3.3-0.1-mdv2011.0.noarch.rpm 299698fbd6d338ef27056b7252086930 2011/SRPMS/python-django-1.3.3-0.1.src.rpm Mandriva Linux 2011/X86_64: cf1c350871d68647a476d4ab31f93685 2011/x86_64/python-django-1.3.3-0.1-mdv2011.0.noarch.rpm 299698fbd6d338ef27056b7252086930 2011/SRPMS/python-django-1.3.3-0.1.src.rpm Mandriva Enterprise Server 5: 0a3c29ad46d51eaf9d5cdf3bc1403609 mes5/i586/python-django-1.3.3-0.1mdvmes5.2.noarch.rpm 688d1e9c83f568a912aa67ebc42aa982 mes5/SRPMS/python-django-1.3.3-0.1mdvmes5.2.src.rpm Mandriva Enterprise Server 5/X86_64: 24bceea1424c615c4b2f4c9423717df1 mes5/x86_64/python-django-1.3.3-0.1mdvmes5.2.noarch.rpm 688d1e9c83f568a912aa67ebc42aa982 mes5/SRPMS/python-django-1.3.3-0.1mdvmes5.2.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
