[USN-73-1] Python vulnerability

===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-73-1           February 03, 2005
python2.2, python2.3 vulnerability
CAN-2005-0089
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:

python2.2
python2.3

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.2.3-10ubuntu0.1 (python2.2) and 2.3.4-2ubuntu0.1
(python2.3). After a standard system upgrade you must restart all
running Python server applications that use XML-RPC to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

The Python developers discovered a flaw in the SimpleXMLRPCServer
module. Python XML-RPC servers that used the register_instance()
method to register an object, but do not have a _dispatch() method,
allowed remote users to access or change function internals using the
im_* and func_* attributes.
