A vulnerability was reported in Python's socket module, due to a
boundary error within the sock_recvfrom_into() function, which could
be exploited to cause a buffer overflow. This could be used to crash a
Python application that uses the socket.recvfrom_info() function or,
possibly, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user
running vulnerable Python code (CVE-2014-1912).
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
