    It was discovered that the Piston framework can deserializes untrusted
    YAML and Pickle data, leading to remote code execution. (CVE-2011-4103)
    
    The old stable distribution (lenny) does not contain a
    python-django-piston package.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.2.2-1+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 0.2.2-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-django-piston packages.
