    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Django, a high-level Python
    web development framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
    project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2014-0472
    
        Benjamin Bach discovered that Django incorrectly handled dotted
        Python paths when using the reverse() URL resolver function. An
        attacker able to request a specially crafted view from a Django
        application could use this issue to cause Django to import arbitrary
        modules from the Python path, resulting in possible code execution.
    
    CVE-2014-0473
    
        Paul McMillan discovered that Django incorrectly cached certain
        pages that contained CSRF cookies. A remote attacker could use this
        flaw to acquire the CSRF token of a different user and bypass
        intended CSRF protections in a Django application.
    
    CVE-2014-0474
    
        Michael Koziarski discovered that certain Django model field classes
        did not properly perform type conversion on their arguments, which
        allows remote attackers to obtain unexpected results.
    
    CVE-2014-1418
    
        Michael Nelson, Natalia Bidart and James Westby discovered that
        cached data in Django could be served to a different session, or to
        a user with no session at all. An attacker may use this to retrieve
        private data or poison caches.
    
    CVE-2014-3730
    
        Peter Kuma and Gavin Wahl discovered that Django incorrectly
        validated certain malformed URLs from user input. An attacker may
        use this to cause unexpected redirects.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.3-3+squeeze10.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.5-1+deb7u7.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.6.5-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.6.5-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-django packages.
