Releases

Packages

Details

Sergey Bobrov discovered that Django incorrectly parsed cookies when being
used with Google Analytics. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue
to set arbitrary cookies leading to a CSRF protection bypass.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 16.04
Ubuntu 14.04
Ubuntu 12.04

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