Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-08-08 15:44:59 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #846757 +++

Description of problem:
Current version of python-djblets for Fedora EPEL-5 contains embedded / own copy of python-feedparser (BUILD/Djblets-0.6.22/djblets/feedview/feedparser.py) code, which is vulnerable to numerous security flaws (CVE-2009-5065, CVE-2011-1156, CVE-2011-1157, and CVE-2011-1158 to mention some of them).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:
See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=684877#c2 and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=684877#c3 for further details.

Particular python-feedparser issues are as follows:
1, CVE-2009-5065
   Upstream ticket: http://code.google.com/p/feedparser/issues/detail?id=195
   Relevant patch: http://code.google.com/p/feedparser/source/detail?r=336#

2) CVE-2011-1156:
   Upstream ticket: https://code.google.com/p/feedparser/issues/detail?id=91
   Relevant patch: https://code.google.com/p/feedparser/source/detail?r=376#

3) CVE-2011-1157:
   Upstream ticket: https://code.google.com/p/feedparser/issues/detail?id=254
   Relevant patch: https://code.google.com/p/feedparser/source/detail?r=375#

4) CVE-2011-1158:
   Upstream ticket: https://code.google.com/p/feedparser/issues/detail?id=255
   Relevant patch: https://code.google.com/p/feedparser/source/detail?r=374#

Since there is a system version of python-feedparser package available in Fedora EPEL-5 (python-feedparser-5.0.1-1.el5), which is not vulnerable to these issues any more (bug #684877), if possible, python-djblets should be instructed to use system version of the python-feedparser package instead of the embedded feedparser.py code (since if another security issue is found in the embedded code, python-djblets would need to be updated too).
