Package        : mod-wsgi
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0240 CVE-2014-0242

Two security issues have been found in the Python WSGI adapter module 
for Apache:

CVE-2014-0240

    Robert Kisteleki discovered a potential privilege escalation in
    daemon mode. This is not exploitable with the kernel used in Debian
    7.0/wheezy.

CVE-2014-0242

    Buck Golemon discovered that incorect memory handling could lead to
    information disclosure when processing Content-Type headers.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.3-2+deb6u1.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.3-4+deb7u1.

For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.5-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.5-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mod-wsgi packages.
