Details

It was discovered that Python Paste did not properly sanitize certain
strings, resulting in cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities. With
cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if a user were tricked into viewing
server output during a crafted server request, a remote attacker could
exploit this to modify the contents, or steal confidential data, within
the same domain.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 10.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
