    Package        : beaker
    Vulnerability  : information disclosure
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2012-3458
    Debian Bug     : 684890
    
    It was discovered that Beaker, a cache and session library for Python,
    when using the python-crypto backend, is vulnerable to information
    disclosure due to a cryptographic weakness related to the use of the
    AES cipher in ECB mode.
    
    Systems that have the python-pycryptopp package should not be
    vulnerable, as this backend is preferred over python-crypto.
    
    After applying this update, existing sessions will be invalidated.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.4-4+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), and the unstable distribution
    (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.6.3-1.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your beaker packages.
