Detail

Updated python-jinja2 packages fix security vulnerability:

Jinja2, a template engine written in pure python, was found to use /tmp as a default directory for jinja2.bccache.FileSystemBytecodeCache, which is insecure because the /tmp directory is world-writable and the filenames used like 'FileSystemBytecodeCache' are often predictable. A malicious user could exploit this bug to execute arbitrary code as another user (CVE-2014-1402).

Title: RHSA-2014:0747: python-jinja2 security update (Moderate)
Description: Jinja2 is a template engine written in pure Python. It provides a Django-inspired, non-XML syntax but supports inline expressions and an optional sandboxed environment. It was discovered that Jinja2 did not properly handle bytecode cache files stored in the system's temporary directory. A local attacker could use this flaw to alter the output of an application using Jinja2 and FileSystemBytecodeCache, and potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of that application. (CVE-2014-1402) All python-jinja2 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. For the update to take effect, all applications using python-jinja2 must be restarted.
