 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2014:135
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : python
 Date    : July 10, 2014
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated python and python-simplejson package fixes security
 vulnerability
 
 Python are susceptible to arbitrary process memory reading by a user
 or adversary due to a bug in the _json module caused by insufficient
 bounds checking. The bug is caused by allowing the user to supply a
 negative value that is used an an array index, causing the scanstring
 function to access process memory outside of the string it is intended
 to access (CVE-2014-4616).
 
 This issue also affected the python-simplejson package, which has
 been patched to fix the bug.
