 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:143
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : python-django
 Date    : August 23, 2012
 Affected: 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
 python-django:
 
 The (1) django.http.HttpResponseRedirect and (2)
 django.http.HttpResponsePermanentRedirect classes in Django before
 1.3.2 and 1.4.x before 1.4.1 do not validate the scheme of a redirect
 target, which might allow remote attackers to conduct cross-site
 scripting (XSS) attacks via a data: URL (CVE-2012-3442).
 
 The django.forms.ImageField class in the form system in Django
 before 1.3.2 and 1.4.x before 1.4.1 completely decompresses image
 data during image validation, which allows remote attackers to cause
 a denial of service (memory consumption) by uploading an image file
 (CVE-2012-3443).
 
 The get_image_dimensions function in the image-handling functionality
 in Django before 1.3.2 and 1.4.x before 1.4.1 uses a constant chunk
 size in all attempts to determine dimensions, which allows remote
 attackers to cause a denial of service (process or thread consumption)
 via a large TIFF image (CVE-2012-3444).
 
 The updated packages have been upgraded to the 1.3.3 version which
 is not vulnerable to these issues.
