    Package        : python3.4

    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-9948
    
    
    The urllib library in Python ships support for a second, not well known
    URL scheme for accessing local files ("local_file://"). This scheme can
    be used to circumvent protections that try to block local file access
    and only block the well-known "file://" schema. This update addresses
    the vulnerability by disallowing the "local_file://" URL scheme.
    
    This update also fixes another regresssion introduced in the update
    issued as DLA-1835-1 that broke installation of libpython3.4-testsuite.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    3.4.2-1+deb8u5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python3.4 packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of python3.4 please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
    https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/python3.4
