Debian: Security update for sqlalchemy

It was discovered that sqlalchemy, an SQL toolkit and object relational mapper for python, is not sanitizing input passed to the limit/offset keywords to select() as well as the value passed to select.limit()/offset(). This allows an attacker to perform SQL injection attacks against applications using sqlalchemy that do not implement their own filtering. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

It was discovered that sqlalchemy, an SQL toolkit and object relational
mapper for python, is not sanitizing input passed to the limit/offset
keywords to select() as well as the value passed to select.limit()/offset().
This allows an attacker to perform SQL injection attacks against
