New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.5

DescriptionBenjamin C. Wiley Sittler reports :
I discovered a [buffer overrun in repr() for unicode strings]. This causes an unpatched non-debug wide (UTF-32/UCS-4) build of python to abort.
Ubuntu security team reports :
If an application uses repr() on arbitrary untrusted data, this [bug] could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the python application.
