Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : python
Version     : 2.3.4
Release     : 13.1
Summary     : An interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language.
Description :
Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming
language often compared to Tcl, Perl, Scheme or Java. Python includes
modules, classes, exceptions, very high level dynamic data types and
dynamic typing. Python supports interfaces to many system calls and
libraries, as well as to various windowing systems (X11, Motif, Tk,
Mac and MFC).

Programmers can write new built-in modules for Python in C or C++.
Python can be used as an extension language for applications that need
a programmable interface. This package contains most of the standard
Python modules, as well as modules for interfacing to the Tix widget
set for Tk and RPM.

Note that documentation for Python is provided in the python-docs

Update Information:

n object traversal bug was found in the Python SimpleXMLRPCServer.  This
bug could allow a remote untrusted user to do unrestricted object traversal
and allow them to access or change function internals using the im_* and
func_* attributes.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
( has assigned the name CAN-2005-0089 to this issue.

Users of Python are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct this issue.
