    Package        : python-django
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-5143 CVE-2015-5144
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Django, a high-level Python
    web development framework:
    
    CVE-2015-5143
    
        Eric Peterson and Lin Hua Cheng discovered that a new empty record
        used to be created in the session storage every time a session was
        accessed and an unknown session key was provided in the request
        cookie. This could allow remote attackers to saturate the session
        store or cause other users' session records to be evicted.
    
    CVE-2015-5144
    
        Sjoerd Job Postmus discovered that some built-in validators did not
        properly reject newlines in input values. This could allow remote
        attackers to inject headers in emails and HTTP responses.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.4.5-1+deb7u12.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.7.7-1+deb8u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-django packages.
