Python 'sock_recvfrom_into()' Function Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Python is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to perform adequate boundary-checks on user-supplied input.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service condition.

Python 2.7,3.1,3.2,3.3 are vulnerable.
