Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.57502
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-359-1 (python2.4)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-359-1 (python2.4)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to python2.4
announced via advisory USN-359-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04
Ubuntu 5.10
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Benjamin C. Wiley Sittler discovered that Python's repr() function did
not properly handle UTF-32/UCS-4 strings. If an application uses
repr() on arbitrary untrusted data, this could be exploited to execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the python application.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.04:
python2.3 2.3.5-2ubuntu0.3
python2.4-minimal 2.4.1-0ubuntu0.2

Ubuntu 5.10:
python2.3 2.3.5-8ubuntu0.2
python2.4-minimal 2.4.2-1ubuntu0.2

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
python2.3-dbg 2.3.5-9ubuntu1.2
python2.4-minimal 2.4.3-0ubuntu6

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
