Description :

The Python developers discovered a flaw in the SimpleXMLRPCServer
module. Python XML-RPC servers that used the register_instance()
method to register an object, but do not have a _dispatch() method,
permited remote users to access or change function internals using the
im_* and func_* attributes.

Solution :
