Updated python and python-simplejson package fixes security
Python are susceptible to arbitrary process memory reading by a user
or adversary due to a bug in the _json module caused by insufficient
bounds checking. The bug is caused by allowing the user to supply a
negative value that is used an an array index, causing the scanstring
function to access process memory outside of the string it is intended
to access (CVE-2014-4616).
This issue also affected the python-simplejson package, which has been
patched to fix the bug.
