CVE ID:CVE-2008-1887
Description:Python 2.5.2 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via multiple vectors that cause a negative size value to be provided to the PyString_FromStringAndSize function, which allocates less memory than expected when assert() is disabled and triggers a buffer overflow.
Test IDs: 1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.61372   1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60798
