object-oriented programming language, which includes modules, classes,
exceptions, very high level dynamic data types and dynamic typing. Python

data. (CVE-2014-9365) Note: The Python standard library was updated to enable
certificate verification by default. Refer to the Knowledgebase article 2039753
