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.
