    Package        : python-django
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-5963 CVE-2015-5964
    
    Lin Hua Cheng discovered that a session could be created when anonymously
    accessing the django.contrib.auth.views.logout view. This could allow
    remote attackers to saturate the session store or cause other users'
    session records to be evicted.
    
    Additionally the contrib.sessions.backends.base.SessionBase.flush() and
    cache_db.SessionStore.flush() methods have been modified to avoid
    creating a new empty session as well.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.4.5-1+deb7u13.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.7.7-1+deb8u2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed
    shortly.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-django packages.
