 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:234

 Package : python-django
 Date    : September 13, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in python-django:
 Rainer Koirikivi discovered a directory traversal vulnerability
 with &#039;ssi&#039; template tags in python-django, a high-level Python
 web development framework. It was shown that the handling of the
 &#039;ALLOWED_INCLUDE_ROOTS&#039; setting, used to represent allowed prefixes
 for the {% ssi %} template tag, is vulnerable to a directory traversal
 attack, by specifying a file path which begins as the absolute path
 of a directory in &#039;ALLOWED_INCLUDE_ROOTS&#039;, and then uses relative
 paths to break free.  To exploit this vulnerability an attacker must
 be in a position to alter templates on the site, or the site to be
 attacked must have one or more templates making use of the &#039;ssi&#039; tag,
 and must allow some form of unsanitized user input to be used as an
 argument to the &#039;ssi&#039; tag (CVE-2013-4315).
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
