Package        : python-cherrypy
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-0252

It was discovered that a directory traversal vulnerability in CherryPy,
a pythonic, object-oriented web development framework may lead to denial 
of service by deleting files through malicious session IDs in cookies.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.1-3etch1.

The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain python-cherrypy.

We recommend that you upgrade your python-cherrypy packages.
