SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux 2 host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA security regression of CVE-2019-9636 was discovered in python, which still allows an attacker to exploit CVE-2019-9636 by abusing the user and password parts of a URL. When an application parses user-supplied URLs to store cookies, authentication credentials, or other kind of information, it is possible for an attacker to provide specially crafted URLs to make the application locate host-related information (e.g. cookies, authentication data) and send them to a different host than where it should, unlike if the URLs had been correctly parsed.
The result of an attack may vary based on the application.
SolutionRun 'yum update python' to update your system.
