8e5e6d42-a0fa-11e3-b09a-080027f2d077Python -- buffer overflow in socket.recvfrom_into()

Vincent Danen via Red Hat Issue Tracker reports:

A vulnerability was reported in Python's socket module, due to a boundary error within the sock_recvfrom_into() function, which could be exploited to cause a buffer overflow. This could be used to crash a Python application that uses the socket.recvfrom_info() function or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running vulnerable Python code.

This vulnerable function, socket.recvfrom_into(), was introduced in Python 2.5. Earlier versions are not affected by this flaw.
