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.
