    CVE ID         : CVE-2020-6816
    Debian Bug     : 954236
    
    It was reported that python-bleach, a whitelist-based HTML-sanitizing
    library, is prone to a mutation XSS vulnerability in bleach.clean when
    strip=False and 'math' or 'svg' tags and one or more of the RCDATA tags
    were whitelisted.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.1.2-0+deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-bleach packages.
