USN-1040-1: Django vulnerabilities

07 January 2011

An attacker could send crafted input to Django and cause it to utilize too many resources.




Adam Baldwin discovered that Django did not properly validate query string
lookups. This could be exploited to provide an information leak to an
attacker with admin privilieges. (CVE-2010-4534)

Paul McMillan discovered that Django did not validate the length of the
token used when generating a password reset. An attacker could exploit
this to cause a denial of service via resource exhaustion. (CVE-2010-4535)

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 10.10
Ubuntu 10.04

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