Description

SQLAlchemy is an Object Relational Mapper (ORM) that provides a flexible,high-level interface to SQL databases.It was discovered that SQLAlchemy did not sanitize values for the limit andoffset keywords for SQL select statements. If an application usingSQLAlchemy accepted values for these keywords, and did not filter orsanitize them before passing them to SQLAlchemy, it could allow an attackerto perform an SQL injection attack against the application. (CVE-2012-0805)All users of python-sqlalchemy are advised to upgrade to this updatedpackage, which contains a patch to correct this issue. All runningapplications using SQLAlchemy must be restarted for this update to takeeffect.
