Debian Security Advisory
DLA-475-1 python-tornado -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 15 May 2016
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2014-9720.
- More information:
It was discovered that python-tornado, a Python web framework and asynchronous networking library, was susceptible for the BREACH attack. The XSRF token is now encoded with a random mask on each request. This makes it safe to include in compressed pages without being vulnerable.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 2.3-2+deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your python-tornado packages.
