 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2010:132
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : python
 Date    : July 14, 2010
 Affected: 2008.0, 2009.0, 2009.1, 2010.0, 2010.1, Corporate 4.0,
           Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in python:
 
 Multiple integer overflows in audioop.c in the audioop module in
 Ptthon allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
 (application crash) via a large fragment, as demonstrated by a call
 to audioop.lin2lin with a long string in the first argument, leading
 to a buffer overflow.  NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an
 incorrect fix for CVE-2008-3143.5 (CVE-2010-1634).
 
 The audioop module in Python does not verify the relationships between
 size arguments and byte string lengths, which allows context-dependent
 attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and
 application crash) via crafted arguments, as demonstrated by a call
 to audioop.reverse with a one-byte string, a different vulnerability
 than CVE-2010-1634 (CVE-2010-2089).
 
 Packages for 2008.0 and 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended
 Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:
 http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149&products_id=490
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
