- Date Reported:
- 05 Jan 2017
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2013-7459.
- More information:
It was discovered that the previous attempt to fix the regression in python-crypto, a cryptographic algorithms and protocols for Python, was incorrect.
This regression was initially introduced in 2.6-4+deb7u4 and not correctly fixed in 2.6-4+deb7u5. We now really print a warning (not raise an exception) on invalid input. Thanks to Salvatore Bonaccorso and Sebastian Ramacher.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, this issue has been fixed in python-crypto version 2.6-4+deb7u6.
We recommend that you upgrade your python-crypto packages.
