Debian Security Advisory

DLA-761-1 python-bottle -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
24 Dec 2016
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 848392.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2016-9964.
More information:

It was discovered that bottle, a WSGI-framework for the Python programming language, did not properly filter "\r\n" sequences when handling redirections. This allowed an attacker to perform CRLF attacks such as HTTP header injection.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 0.10.11-1+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your python-bottle packages.
