    Package        : sqlalchemy
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitization
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2012-0805
    
    It was discovered that sqlalchemy, an SQL toolkit and object relational
    mapper for python, is not sanitizing input passed to the limit/offset
    keywords to select() as well as the value passed to select.limit()/offset().
    This allows an attacker to perform SQL injection attacks against
    applications using sqlalchemy that do not implement their own filtering.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.6.3-3+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.6.7-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.6.7-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sqlalchemy packages.
