    python-django vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 16.10
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    - 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:
    
    Marti Raudsepp discovered that Django incorrectly used a hardcoded password
    when running tests on an Oracle database. A remote attacker could possibly
    connect to the database while the tests are running and prevent the test
    user with the hardcoded password from being removed. (CVE-2016-9013)
    
    Aymeric Augustin discovered that Django incorrectly validated hosts when
    being run with the debug setting enabled. A remote attacker could possibly
    use this issue to perform DNS rebinding attacks. (CVE-2016-9014)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 16.10:
      python-django                   1.8.7-1ubuntu8.1
      python3-django                  1.8.7-1ubuntu8.1
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      python-django                   1.8.7-1ubuntu5.4
      python3-django                  1.8.7-1ubuntu5.4
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      python-django                   1.6.1-2ubuntu0.16
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      python-django                   1.3.1-4ubuntu1.22
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
