    1. Summary:
    
    Updated python-jinja2 packages that fix one security issue are now
    available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
    
    The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Moderate
    security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
    which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
    the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Optional (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node Optional (v. 6) - x86_64

    3. Description:
    
    Jinja2 is a template engine written in pure Python. It provides a
    Django-inspired, non-XML syntax but supports inline expressions and an
    optional sandboxed environment.
    
    It was discovered that Jinja2 did not properly handle bytecode cache files
    stored in the system's temporary directory. A local attacker could use this
    flaw to alter the output of an application using Jinja2 and
    FileSystemBytecodeCache, and potentially execute arbitrary code with the
    privileges of that application. (CVE-2014-1402)
    
    All python-jinja2 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
    which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. For the update to
    take effect, all applications using python-jinja2 must be restarted.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.
    
    This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the
    Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
