Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:035: python

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the python package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:035 (python).



A flaw in the python language was found by the development team. The
SimpleXMLRPCServer library module could permit remote attackers unintended
access to internals of the registered object or it's module, or possibly even
other modules. This only affects python XML-RPC servers that use the
register_instance() method to register an object without a _dispatch() method.
Servers that only use the register_function() method are not affected.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
