    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 15.10
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in Django.
    
    Software Description:
    - python-django: High-level Python web development framework
    
    Details:
    
    Mark Striemer discovered that Django incorrectly handled user-supplied
    redirect URLs containing basic authentication credentials. A remote
    attacker could possibly use this issue to perform a cross-site scripting
    attack or a malicious redirect. (CVE-2016-2512)
    
    Sjoerd Job Postmus discovered that Django incorrectly handled timing when
    doing password hashing operations. A remote attacker could possibly use
    this issue to perform user enumeration. (CVE-2016-2513)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 15.10:
      python-django                   1.7.9-1ubuntu5.2
      python3-django                  1.7.9-1ubuntu5.2
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      python-django                   1.6.1-2ubuntu0.12
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      python-django                   1.3.1-4ubuntu1.20
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
