 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:227
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : python-setuptools
 Date    : September 9, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in
 python-setuptools/python-virtualenv:
 
 easy_install in setuptools before 0.7 uses HTTP to retrieve packages
 from the PyPI repository, and does not perform integrity checks on
 package contents, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to execute
 arbitrary code via a crafted response to the default use of the product
 (CVE-2013-1633).
 
 The updated python-setuptools packages has been upgraded to the 0.9.8
 version and the python-virtualenv packages has been upgraded to the
 1.10.1 version which is not vulnerable to this issue.
