Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1197] DSA-1197-1 python2.4

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1197-1 python2.4

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Benjamin C. Wiley Sittler discovered that the repr() of the Python
interpreter allocates insufficient memory when parsing UCS-4 Unicode
strings, which might lead to execution of arbitrary code through
a buffer overflow.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.4.1-2sarge1. Due to build problems this update lacks fixed
packages for the m68k architecture. Once they are sorted out, binaries
for m68k will be released.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.4.4-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your Python 2.4 packages.
