    Package        : python-django
    Vulnerability  : denial of service
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2013-1443
    Debian Bug     : 723043
    
    It was discovered that python-django, a high-level Python web
    develompent framework, is prone to a denial of service vulnerability
    via large passwords.
    
    A non-authenticated remote attacker could mount a denial of service by
    submitting arbitrarily large passwords, tying up server resources in
    the expensive computation of the corresponding hashes to verify the
    password.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.3-3+squeeze8.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.5-1+deb7u4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-django packages.
