Package : python2.5
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-2052 CVE-2007-4965 CVE-2008-1679 CVE-2008-1721 CVE-2008-1887

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the interpreter for the
Python language. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
the following problems:

CVE-2007-2052

Piotr Engelking discovered that the strxfrm() function of the locale
module miscalculates the length of an internal buffer, which may
result in a minor information disclosure.

CVE-2007-4965

It was discovered that several integer overflows in the imageop
module may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, if a user is
tricked into processing malformed images. This issue is also
tracked as CVE-2008-1679 due to an initially incomplete patch.

CVE-2008-1721

Justin Ferguson discovered that a buffer overflow in the zlib
module may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-1887

Justin Ferguson discovered that insufficient input validation in
PyString_FromStringAndSize() may lead to the execution of arbitrary
code.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.5-5+etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.5.2-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your python2.5 packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.


Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias etch
- -------------------------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
