Updated python packages fix security vulnerabilities :
A race condition was found in the way the Python distutils module set
file permissions during the creation of the .pypirc file. If a local
user had access to the home directory of another user who is running
distutils, they could use this flaw to gain access to that user's
.pypirc file, which can contain usernames and passwords for code
Additionally, python has been built against the system expat and ffi
libraries, to avoid any future issues with those (mitigates
CVE-2012-0876 for expat).
