Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51293
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-73-1 (python2.3)
Summary:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-73-1 (python2.3)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to python2.3
announced via advisory USN-73-1.

The Python developers discovered a flaw in the SimpleXMLRPCServer
module. Python XML-RPC servers that used the register_instance()
method to register an object, but do not have a _dispatch() method,
allowed remote users to access or change function internals using the
im_* and func_* attributes.

The following packages are affected:

python2.2
python2.3

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.2.3-10ubuntu0.1 (python2.2) and 2.3.4-2ubuntu0.1
(python2.3). After a standard system upgrade you must restart all
running Python server applications that use XML-RPC to effect the
necessary changes.
