MandrakeSoft has released an updated python packages for Mandrake Linux 9.0
A vulnerability was discovered in python by Zack Weinberg in the way that the execvpe() method from the os.py module uses a temporary file name. The file is created in an unsafe manner and execvpe() tries to execute it, which can be used by a local attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privilege of the user running the python code that is using this method.
