It was discovered that the ALGnew function in block_templace.c in the Python
Cryptography Toolkit contained a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability.
A remote attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code by using
a crafted initialization vector parameter.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
