USN-3115-1: Django vulnerabilities

1 November 2016

Several security issues were fixed in Django.




Marti Raudsepp discovered that Django incorrectly used a hardcoded password
when running tests on an Oracle database. A remote attacker could possibly
connect to the database while the tests are running and prevent the test
user with the hardcoded password from being removed. (CVE-2016-9013)

Aymeric Augustin discovered that Django incorrectly validated hosts when
being run with the debug setting enabled. A remote attacker could possibly
use this issue to perform DNS rebinding attacks. (CVE-2016-9014)

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 16.10
Ubuntu 16.04
Ubuntu 14.04
Ubuntu 12.04

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