Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in python-django:
The Admin media handler in core/servers/basehttp.py in Django 1.0
and 0.96 does not properly map URL requests to expected static media
files, which allows remote attackers to conduct directory traversal
attacks and read arbitrary files via a crafted URL (CVE-2009-2659).
Algorithmic complexity vulnerability in the forms library in Django
1.0 before 1.0.4 and 1.1 before 1.1.1 allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a crafted (1) EmailField
(email address) or (2) URLField (URL) that triggers a large amount
of backtracking in a regular expression (CVE-2009-3695).
The versions of Django shipping with Mandriva Linux have been updated
to the latest patched version that include the fix for this issue.
In addition, they provide other bug fixes...
