Description Rob Cakebread (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-03 08:24:33 UTC
Versions:     2.2 all versions, 2.3 prior to 2.3.5, 2.4
CVE Names:    CAN-2005-0089

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.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

I've patched and bumped all affected versions in CVS. I beleive you can close this now.

No stable marking needed as keywords were conserved by maintainer.

Ready for GLSA, fixed versions seem to be :
