    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the django web development
    framework:
    
    CVE-2011-0696
    
        For several reasons the internal CSRF protection was not used to
        validate ajax requests in the past. However, it was discovered that
        this exception can be exploited with a combination of browser plugins
        and redirects and thus is not sufficient.
    
    CVE-2011-0697
    
        It was discovered that the file upload form is prone to cross-site
        scripting attacks via the file name.
    
    It is important to note that this update introduces minor backward
    incompatibilities due to the fixes for the above issues.
    For the exact details, please see:
    http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.2/releases/1.2.5/
    and in particular the "Backwards incompatible changes" section.
    
    
    Packages in the oldstable distribution (lenny) are not affected by these
    problems.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.3-3+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.5-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-django packages.
