1 CVE-2008-5983 Exec Code 2009-01-27 2013-05-14
6.9
None Local Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
Untrusted search path vulnerability in the PySys_SetArgv API function in Python 2.6 and earlier, and possibly later versions, prepends an empty string to sys.path when the argv[0] argument does not contain a path separator, which might allow local users to execute arbitrary code via a Trojan horse Python file in the current working directory.
2 CVE-2008-4864 189 Exec Code Overflow 2008-10-31 2012-10-30
7.5
None Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
Multiple integer overflows in imageop.c in the imageop module in Python 1.5.2 through 2.5.1 allow context-dependent attackers to break out of the Python VM and execute arbitrary code via large integer values in certain arguments to the crop function, leading to a buffer overflow, a different vulnerability than CVE-2007-4965 and CVE-2008-1679.
3 CVE-2008-3144 189 DoS Overflow Mem. Corr. 2008-08-01 2010-08-21
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
Multiple integer overflows in the PyOS_vsnprintf function in Python/mysnprintf.c in Python 2.5.2 and earlier allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or have unspecified other impact via crafted input to string formatting operations. NOTE: the handling of certain integer values is also affected by related integer underflows and an off-by-one error.
4 CVE-2008-3142 119 DoS Overflow 2008-08-01 2010-08-21
7.5
None Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
Multiple buffer overflows in Python 2.5.2 and earlier on 32bit platforms allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or have unspecified other impact via a long string that leads to incorrect memory allocation during Unicode string processing, related to the unicode_resize function and the PyMem_RESIZE macro.
5 CVE-2008-2315 189 Overflow 2008-08-01 2010-08-21
7.5
None Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
Multiple integer overflows in Python 2.5.2 and earlier allow context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via vectors related to the (1) stringobject, (2) unicodeobject, (3) bufferobject, (4) longobject, (5) tupleobject, (6) stropmodule, (7) gcmodule, and (8) mmapmodule modules. NOTE: The expandtabs integer overflows in stringobject and unicodeobject in 2.5.2 are covered by CVE-2008-5031.
6 CVE-2008-1887 119 Exec Code Overflow 2008-04-18 2010-11-30
9.3
Admin Remote Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
Python 2.5.2 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via multiple vectors that cause a negative size value to be provided to the PyString_FromStringAndSize function, which allocates less memory than expected when assert() is disabled and triggers a buffer overflow.
7 CVE-2007-4965 189 DoS Overflow +Info 2007-09-18 2010-08-21
5.8
None Remote Medium Not required Partial None Partial
Multiple integer overflows in the imageop module in Python 2.5.1 and earlier allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly obtain sensitive information (memory contents) via crafted arguments to (1) the tovideo method, and unspecified other vectors related to (2) imageop.c, (3) rbgimgmodule.c, and other files, which trigger heap-based buffer overflows.
8 CVE-2006-4980 DoS Exec Code Overflow 2006-10-10 2010-09-15
7.5
User Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
Buffer overflow in the repr function in Python 2.3 through 2.6 before 20060822 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted wide character UTF-32/UCS-4 strings to certain scripts.
9 CVE-2006-1542 Overflow +Priv 2006-03-30 2009-01-23
3.7
User Local High Not required Partial Partial Partial
Stack-based buffer overflow in Python 2.4.2 and earlier, running on Linux 2.6.12.5 under gcc 4.0.3 with libc 2.3.5, allows local users to cause a "stack overflow," and possibly gain privileges, by running a script from a current working directory that has a long name, related to the realpath function. NOTE: this might not be a vulnerability. However, the fact that it appears in a programming language interpreter could mean that some applications are affected, although attack scenarios might be limited because the attacker might already need to cross privilege boundaries to cause an exploitable program to be placed in a directory with a long name; or, depending on the method that Python uses to determine the current working directory, setuid applications might be affected.
10 CVE-2005-0089 Exec Code 2005-05-02 2010-08-21
7.5
None Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
The SimpleXMLRPCServer library module in Python 2.2, 2.3 before 2.3.5, and 2.4, when used by XML-RPC servers that use the register_instance method to register an object without a _dispatch method, allows remote attackers to read or modify globals of the associated module, and possibly execute arbitrary code, via dotted attributes.
