 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2008:164
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : python
 Date : August 7, 2008
 Affected: Corporate 4.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple integer overflows in the imageop module in Python prior to
 2.5.3 allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
 (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted images that
 trigger heap-based buffer overflows (CVE-2008-1679). This was due
 to an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-4965.
 
 David Remahl of Apple Product Security reported several integer
 overflows in a number of core modules (CVE-2008-2315).
 
 Justin Ferguson reported multiple buffer overflows in unicode string
 processing that affected 32bit systems (CVE-2008-3142).
 
 Multiple integer overflows were reported by the Google Security Team
 that had been fixed in Python 2.5.2 (CVE-2008-3143).
 
 Justin Ferguson reported a number of integer overflows and underflows
 in the PyOS_vsnprintf() function, as well as an off-by-one error
 when passing zero-length strings, that led to memory corruption
 (CVE-2008-3144).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
 As well, Python packages on Corporate Server 4 have been updated to
 the latest version 2.4.5.
