------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2008-37            security () pardus org tr
------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Date: 2008-09-06
   Severity: 3
       Type: Remote
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Summary
=======

A vulnerability has been reported in Django, which can be exploited  by
malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.


Description
===========

The vulnerability is caused due to the Django administration application
not  performing any  validity   checks   to   verify   requests   when
re-authenticating the user. This can be exploited to  delete  and  edit
data when a not logged-in user e.g. visits a malicious web site and  is
then enticed to log in to the application.


Affected packages:

   Pardus 2008:
     Django, all before 1.0-15-2
   Pardus 2007:
     Django, all before 0.96.3-15-11


Resolution
==========

There are update(s) for Django. You can update them via Package Manager
or with a single command from console:

   Pardus 2008:
     pisi up Django

   Pardus 2007:
     pisi up Django
