Python 'bufferobject.c' Integer Overflow Vulnerability

Python is prone to an integer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to properly bounds check user-supplied input before copying it into an insufficiently sized buffer.

Attackers can exploit this issue to obtain potentially sensitive information or cause a denial-of-service condition.

Versions prior to Python 2.7.8 are vulnerable.
