Changelog

python-django (1.2.3-1ubuntu0.2.10.10.3) maverick-security; urgency=low

  * SECURITY UPDATE: session manipulation when using django.contrib.sessions
    with memory-based sessions and caching
    - debian/patches/CVE-2011-4136.patch: use namespace of cache to store keys
      for session instead of root namespace
    - CVE-2011-4136
  * SECURITY UPDATE: potential denial of service and information disclosure in
    URLField
    - debian/patches/CVE-2011-4137+4138.patch: set verify_exists to False by
      default and use a timeout if available.
    - CVE-2011-4137, CVE-2011-4138
  * SECURITY UPDATE: potential cache-poisoning via crafted Host header
    - debian/patches/CVE-2011-4139.patch: ignore X-Forwarded-Host header by
      default when constructing full URLs
    - CVE-2011-4139
  * debian/patches/01_disable_url_verify_regression_tests.diff: remove the
    test_correct_url_but_nonexisting_gives_404() test from the
    modeltests/validation/tests.py too. Not sure how it passed before, but
    this makes the CVE-2011-4137+4138.patch consistent with our other releases
    since the upstream fix for CVE-2011-4137+4138.patch removed this test too.

python-django: High-level Python web development framework

 Django is a high-level web application framework that loosely follows the
 model-view-controller design pattern.
 .
 Python's equivalent to Ruby on Rails, Django lets you build complex
 data-driven websites quickly and easily - Django focuses on automating as much
 as possible and adhering to the "Don't Repeat Yourself" (DRY) principle.
 .
 Django additionally emphasizes reusability and "pluggability" of components;
 many generic third-party "applications" are available to enhance projects or
 to simply to reduce development time even further.
 .
 Notable features include:
  * An object-relational mapper (ORM)
  * Automatic admin interface
  * Elegant URL dispatcher
  * Form serialization and validation system
  * Templating system
  * Lightweight, standalone web server for development and testing
  * Internationalization support
