Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2006-0197: python

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the python packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated Python packages are now available to correct a security issue.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming
language.

An integer overflow flaw was found in Python's PCRE library that could be
triggered by a maliciously crafted regular expression. On systems that
accept arbitrary regular expressions from untrusted users, this could be
exploited to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the application
using the library. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
assigned the name CVE-2005-2491 to this issue.

Users of Python should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch that is not vulnerable to this issue.
