An update that fixes two vulnerabilities is now available.
Description:

This update for python39 fixes the following issues:

Security fixes:

- CVE-2022-42919: Fixed local privilege escalation via the multiprocessing
forkserver start method (bsc#1204886).
- CVE-2022-45061: Fixed a quadratic IDNA decoding time (bsc#1205244).
Other fixes:

- Allow building of documentation with the latest Sphinx 5.3.0 (gh#python/cpython#98366).

- Update to 3.9.15:
- Fix multiplying a list by an integer (list *= int): detect the integer
overflow when the new allocated length is close to the maximum size. - Fix a shell code injection vulnerability in the
get-remote-certificate.py example script. The script no longer uses ashell to run openssl commands. (originally filed as CVE-2022-37460, later withdrawn)
- Fix command line parsing: reject -X int_max_str_digits option with novalue (invalid) when the PYTHONINTMAXSTRDIGITS environment variable is
set to a valid limit.
- When ValueError is raised if an integer is larger than the limit, mention the sys.set_int_max_str_digits() function in the error message.
- Update bundled libexpat to 2.4.9
