    Software Description:
    - python-django: High-level Python web development framework
    
    Details:
    
    Florian Apolloner discovered that Django incorrectly validated URLs. A
    remote attacker could use this issue to conduct phishing attacks.
    (CVE-2014-0480)

    generation. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause Django to
    consume resources, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2014-0481)

    contrib.auth.middleware.RemoteUserMiddleware. A remote authenticated user
    could use this issue to hijack web sessions. (CVE-2014-0482)
    
    Collin Anderson discovered that Django incorrectly checked if a field
    represented a relationship between models in the administrative interface.
    A remote authenticated user could use this issue to possibly obtain
    sensitive information. (CVE-2014-0483)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
