MDKSA-2002:082 - Updated python packages fix local arbitrary code execution vul

by Nikola Strahija on November 26th, 2002 A vulnerability was discovered in python by Zack Weinberg in the way that the execvpe() method from the os.py module uses a temporary file name. The file is created in an unsafe manner and execvpe() tries to execute it, which can be used by a local attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privilege of the user running the python code that is using this method.
