Previous versions of the python package have two weaknesses that
may trigger vulnerabilities in programs that use python. Any
program that uses repr() on arbitrary unchecked user-supplied
unicode strings was vulnerable to a Denial of Service attack and
may be vulnerable to a privilege escalation or unauthorized
access attack, depending on the context in which it is used.
Additionally, some programs that use email.Utils may have
vulnerabilities which could have been exposed by a weakness
in parsing RFC 2231 headers in those previous versions.
