Vulnerability Assessment Summary
python2.2, python2.3 vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- idle-python2.2
- idle-python2.3
- python2.2
- python2.2-dev
- python2.2-doc
- python2.2-examples
- python2.2-gdbm

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 :

Upgrade to :
