Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6513-1

Ubuntu Security Notice 6513-1 – It was discovered that Python incorrectly handled certain plist files. If a user or an automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted plist file, an attacker could possibly use this issue to consume resources, resulting in a denial of service. It was discovered that Python instances of ssl.SSLSocket were vulnerable to a bypass of the TLS handshake. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause applications to treat unauthenticated received data before TLS handshake as authenticated data after TLS handshake.Ubuntu Security Notice 6513-1 – It was discovered that Python incorrectly handled certain plist files.
