The Admin media handler in core/servers/basehttp.py in Django 1.0 and
0.96 does not properly map URL requests to expected "static media
files," which allows remote attackers to conduct directory traversal
attacks and read arbitrary files via a crafted URL.

These should all be resolved in the current release. I don't have access to close bug #515582 or bug #515583. I believe they can be closed as well.
