    Package        : python-django
    Vulnerability  : directory traversal
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2013-4315
    
    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.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.3-3+squeeze7.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.5-1+deb7u3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-django packages.
