The remote host is missing an update for the 'python'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Python is an interpreted, interactive,
object-oriented programming language, which includes modules, classes,
exceptions, very high level dynamic data types and dynamic typing. Python
supports interfaces to many system calls and libraries, as well as to various
windowing systems. Security Fix(es): * The Python standard library HTTP client
modules (such as httplib or urllib) did not perform verification of TLS/SSL
certificates when connecting to HTTPS servers. A man-in-the-middle attacker
could use this flaw to hijack connections and eavesdrop or modify transferred
data. (CVE-2014-9365) Note: The Python standard library was updated to enable
certificate verification by default. Refer to the Knowledgebase article 2039753
linked to in the References section for further details about this change.
(BZ#1219110) Additional Changes: For detailed information on changes in this
release, see the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 Release Notes linked from the
python on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7)
