RHEL 8 : python27:2.7 (RHSA-2024:2987)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 197745

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates for python27:2.7.

Description

The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2024:2987 advisory.

Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language that supports modules, classes, exceptions, high-level dynamic data types, and dynamic typing. The python27 packages provide a stable release of Python 2.7 with a number of additional utilities and database connectors for MySQL and PostgreSQL.

Security Fix(es):

* pypa-setuptools: Regular Expression Denial of Service (ReDoS) in package_index.py (CVE-2022-40897)

* python: use after free in heappushpop() of heapq module (CVE-2022-48560)

* python: XML External Entity in XML processing plistlib module (CVE-2022-48565)

* python-urllib3: Cookie request header isn't stripped during cross-origin redirects (CVE-2023-43804)

* jinja2: HTML attribute injection when passing user input as keys to xmlattr filter (CVE-2024-22195)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.

Additional Changes:

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.10 Release Notes linked from the References section.

Tenable has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux security advisory.

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

Solution

Update the RHEL python27:2.7 package based on the guidance in RHSA-2024:2987.
