 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2009:275
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : python-django
 Date    : October 13, 2009
 Affected: 2008.1
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in python-django:
 
 The Admin media handler in core/servers/basehttp.py in Django 1.0
 and 0.96 does not properly map URL requests to expected static media
 files, which allows remote attackers to conduct directory traversal
 attacks and read arbitrary files via a crafted URL (CVE-2009-2659).
 
 The versions of Django shipping with Mandriva Linux have been updated
 to the latest patched version that include the fix for this issue.
 In addition, they provide other bug fixes.
