Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update for python3 fixes the following issue :

CVE-2019-18348: Fixed a CRLF injection via the host part of the url passed to urlopen(). Now an InvalidURL exception is raised (bsc#1155094).

CVE-2019-9674: Improved the documentation to reflect the dangers of zip-bombs (bsc#1162825).

CVE-2020-8492: Fixed a regular expression in urllib that was prone to denial of service via HTTP (bsc#1162367).

Fixed an issue with version missmatch (bsc#1162224).

Rename idle icons to idle3 in order to not conflict with python2 variant of the package. (bsc#1165894)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
