Description:

    Previous versions of the python package are vulnerable to multiple     attacks, the most serious of which may allow an attacker to execute     arbitrary code.     

    Additionally, previous versions of the python package on rPath Linux 2     and rPath Appliance Platform Linux Service 2 did not provide the bsddb     module. This has been corrected.
