A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

Django could allow unintended access to the database.

Norbert Szetei discovered that Django incorrectly handled the GIS functions
and aggregates on Oracle. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue
to perform an SQL injection attack.

package versions:
