1. Summary:

Updated python packages that fix multiple security issues and three bugs
are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming
language.

Multiple flaws were found in the Python rgbimg module. If an application
written in Python was using the rgbimg module and loaded a
specially-crafted SGI image file, it could cause the application to crash
or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the application. (CVE-2009-4134, CVE-2010-1449, CVE-2010-1450)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* Python 2.3.4's time.strptime() function did not correctly handle the "%W"
week number format string. This update backports the _strptime
implementation from Python 2.3.6, fixing this issue. (BZ#436001)

* Python 2.3.4's socket.htons() function returned partially-uninitialized
data on IBM System z, generally leading to incorrect results. (BZ#513341)

* Python 2.3.4's pwd.getpwuid() and grp.getgrgid() functions did not
support the full range of user and group IDs on 64-bit architectures,
leading to "OverflowError" exceptions for large input values. This update
adds support for the full range of user and group IDs on 64-bit
architectures. (BZ#497540)

Users of Python should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

497540 - grp module does not support whole uid/gid range
541698 - CVE-2009-4134 CVE-2010-1449 CVE-2010-1450 python: rgbimg: multiple security issues
