Description:
Previous versions of the python package are vulnerable to multiple
attacks, the most serious of which may allow an attacker to execute
arbitrary code.

Additionally, previous versions of the python package on rPath Linux 2
and rPath Appliance Platform Linux Service 2 did not provide the bsddb
module. This has been corrected.
