USN-73-1: Python vulnerability
Posted on: 02/03/2005 02:00 PM

A Python security update is available for Ubuntu Linux 4.10

==========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-73-1 February 03, 2005
python2.2, python2.3 vulnerability
CAN-2005-0089
==========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:

python2.2
python2.3

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to version 2.2.3-10ubuntu0.1 (python2.2) and 2.3.4-2ubuntu0.1 (python2.3). After a standard system upgrade you must restart all running Python server applications that use XML-RPC to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

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, allowed remote users to access or change function internals using the im_* and func_* attributes.
