September 09, 2019

python2.7, python3.5, python3.6, python3.7 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.04
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Python.

Software Description:
- python2.7: An interactive high-level object-oriented language
- python3.7: An interactive high-level object-oriented language
- python3.6: An interactive high-level object-oriented language
- python3.5: An interactive high-level object-oriented language

Details:

It was discovered that Python incorrectly handled certain pickle files. An
attacker could possibly use this issue to consume memory, leading to a
denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu
18.04 LTS. (CVE-2018-20406)

It was discovered that Python incorrectly validated the domain when
handling cookies. An attacker could possibly trick Python into sending
cookies to the wrong domain. (CVE-2018-20852)

Jonathan Birch and Panayiotis Panayiotou discovered that Python incorrectly
handled Unicode encoding during NFKC normalization. An attacker could
possibly use this issue to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2019-9636,
CVE-2019-10160)

Colin Read and Nicolas Edet discovered that Python incorrectly handled
parsing certain X509 certificates. An attacker could possibly use this
issue to cause Python to crash, resulting in a denial of service. This
issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. (CVE-2019-5010)

It was discovered that Python incorrectly handled certain urls. A remote
attacker could possibly use this issue to perform CRLF injection attacks.
(CVE-2019-9740, CVE-2019-9947)

Sihoon Lee discovered that Python incorrectly handled the local_file:
scheme. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass blacklist
meschanisms. (CVE-2019-9948)
