From https://secunia.com/advisories/54089/ :
A security issue has been reported in various OpenStack products, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct spoofing attacks.
The security issue is caused due to the application not verifying the validity of the SSL certificates presented when connecting to the server. This can be exploited to spoof a valid server and e.g. conduct Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attacks.
Please see the vendor's advisory for a list of affected products.
No official solution is currently available.
From what I understand about this bug, it is a core python bug for python 2, and documented in bug 480856.
Would this bug be solved by running dev-lang/python-2.7.5-r2 or newer?
ya, this has been fixed in bug 480856
This doesn't do anything on the m68k.
So, I'm removing myself from cc as this is fixed in the python update. Feel free to readd if necessary.
Sorry, wrong bug.
Should be closed as noglsa?
