Advisory ID:       RHSA-2016:0129-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-0129.html

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated python-django packages that fix one security issue are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 6.0 for RHEL 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate security
impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give
detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the
CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 6.0 for RHEL 7 - noarch

3. Description:

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid
development and a clean, pragmatic design. It focuses on automating as much
as possible and adhering to the DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself) principle.

An information-exposure flaw was found in the Django date filter. If an
application allowed users to provide non-validated date formats, a
malicious end user could expose application-settings data by providing
the relevant applications-settings key instead of a valid date format. 
(CVE-2015-8213)

Red Hat would like to thank the Django project for reporting this issue.
Upstream acknowledges Ryan Butterfield as the original reporter.

All python-django users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
