 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:234

 Package : python-django
 Date    : September 13, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in python-django:
 
 Rainer Koirikivi discovered a directory traversal vulnerability
 with 'ssi' template tags in python-django, a high-level Python
 web development framework. It was shown that the handling of the
 'ALLOWED_INCLUDE_ROOTS' setting, used to represent allowed prefixes
 for the {% ssi %} template tag, is vulnerable to a directory traversal
 attack, by specifying a file path which begins as the absolute path
 of a directory in 'ALLOWED_INCLUDE_ROOTS', and then uses relative
 paths to break free.  To exploit this vulnerability an attacker must
 be in a position to alter templates on the site, or the site to be
 attacked must have one or more templates making use of the 'ssi' tag,
 and must allow some form of unsanitized user input to be used as an
 argument to the 'ssi' tag (CVE-2013-4315).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
