    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in Django.
    
    Software Description:
    - python-django: High-level Python web development framework
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that Django incorrectly handled large passwords. A remote
    attacker could use this issue to consume resources, resulting in a denial
    of service. (CVE-2013-1443)
    
    It was discovered that Django incorrectly handled ssi templates. An
    attacker could use this issue to read arbitrary files. (CVE-2013-4315)
    
    It was discovered that the Django is_safe_url utility function did not
    restrict redirects to certain schemes. An attacker could possibly use this
    issue to perform a cross-site scripting attack.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 13.04:
      python-django                   1.4.5-1ubuntu0.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.10:
      python-django                   1.4.1-2ubuntu0.4
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:

    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
      python-django                   1.1.1-2ubuntu1.9
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
