-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2015:133 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/ _______________________________________________________________________ Package : python-requests Date : March 29, 2015 Affected: Business Server 2.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: Updated python-requests packages fix security vulnerabilities: Python-requests was found to have a vulnerability, where the attacker can retrieve the passwords from ~/.netrc file through redirect requests, if the user has their passwords stored in the ~/.netrc file (CVE-2014-1829). It was discovered that the python-requests Proxy-Authorization header was never re-evaluated when a redirect occurs. The Proxy-Authorization header was sent to any new proxy or non-proxy destination as redirected (CVE-2014-1830). In python-requests before 2.6.0, a cookie without a host value set would use the hostname for the redirected URL exposing requests users to session fixation attacks and potentially cookie stealing (CVE-2015-2296). _______________________________________________________________________ References: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-1829 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-1830 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2015-2296 http://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2014-0409.html http://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2015-0120.html _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Business Server 2/X86_64: bdc01b89f7847864db186b65cd1d46a4 mbs2/x86_64/python3-requests-2.3.0-1.1.mbs2.noarch.rpm 003bc0e04b5ebf77bcf00cf004d2591b mbs2/x86_64/python-requests-2.3.0-1.1.mbs2.noarch.rpm 18db7d8b658c588b49979966fce6577d mbs2/SRPMS/python-requests-2.3.0-1.1.mbs2.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
