CentOS 8 : python3.11 (CESA-2024:3062)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 197669


The remote CentOS host is missing a security update.


The remote CentOS Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the CESA-2024:3062 advisory.

- The email module of Python through 3.11.3 incorrectly parses e-mail addresses that contain a special character. The wrong portion of an RFC2822 header is identified as the value of the addr-spec. In some applications, an attacker can bypass a protection mechanism in which application access is granted only after verifying receipt of e-mail to a specific domain (e.g., only @company.example.com addresses may be used for signup). This occurs in email/_parseaddr.py in recent versions of Python. (CVE-2023-27043)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update the affected packages.
