[slackware-security]  Python SimpleXMLRPCServer module (SSA:2005-111-02)

New Python packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1,
and -current to fix a security issue in the SimpleXMLRPCServer library
module.


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/python-2.4.1-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to python-2.4.1.
  From the python.org site:  "The Python development team has discovered a flaw
  in the SimpleXMLRPCServer library module which can give remote attackers
  access to internals of the registered object or its module or possibly other
  modules. The flaw only affects Python XML-RPC servers that use the
  register_instance() method to register an object without a _dispatch()
  method. Servers using only register_function() are not affected."
  For more details, see:
    http://python.org/security/PSF-2005-001/
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/python-demo-2.4.1-noarch-1.tgz:  Upgraded to python-2.4.1
  demos.
patches/packages/python-tools-2.4.1-noarch-1.tgz:  Upgraded to python-2.4.1
  tools.
