Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:135
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : python
Date : July 10, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated python and python-simplejson package fixes security
vulnerability

Python are susceptible to arbitrary process memory reading by a user
or adversary due to a bug in the _json module caused by insufficient
bounds checking. The bug is caused by allowing the user to supply a
negative value that is used an an array index, causing the scanstring
function to access process memory outside of the string it is intended
to access (CVE-2014-4616).

This issue also affected the python-simplejson package, which has
been patched to fix the bug.
