Description (partial)

Cisco Unified Communications Domain Manager includes a version of the Django framework that is affected by the
vulnerabilities identified by the following Common Vulnerability and Exposures (CVE) IDs:

CVE-2013-1443: The authentication framework (django.contrib.auth) in Django 1.4.x before 1.4.8, 1.5.x before
1.5.4, and 1.6.x before 1.6 beta 4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via
a long password which is then hashed. This has been classified by the vendor as having a CVSSv2 score of 5.0

CVE-2013-4315: Directory traversal vulnerability in Django 1.4.x before 1.4.7, 1.5.x before 1.5.3, and 1.6.x
before 1.6 beta 3 allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files via a file path in the ALLOWED_INCLUDE_ROOTS
setting followed by a .. (dot dot) in a ssi template tag. This has been classified by the vendor as having a
CVSSv2 score of 5.0 (AV:N/AC:L/AU:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)

CVE-2013-6044: The is_safe_url function in utils/ in Django 1.4.x before 1.4.6, 1.5.x before 1.5.2, and
1.6 before beta 2 treats a URL's scheme as safe even if it is not HTTP or HTTPS, which might introduce
cross-site scripting (XSS) or other vulnerabilities into Django applications that use this function, as
demonstrated by ''the login view in django.contrib.auth.views'' and the javascript: scheme. This has been
classified by the vendor as having a CVSSv2 score of 4.3 (AV:N/AC:M/AU:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
