Python 'stringobject.c' Multiple Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities

Python is prone to multiple remote buffer-overflow vulnerabilities because certain functions in the core API fail to properly verify user-supplied data.

An attacker can exploit these issues to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running an application that uses the affected functions. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service condition.

This issue affects Python 2.5.2; earlier versions may also be vulnerable.
