    In httplib2, an attacker controlling unescaped part of uri for
    `httplib2.Http.request()` could change request headers and body, send
    additional hidden requests to same server. This vulnerability impacts
    software that uses httplib2 with uri constructed by string
    concatenation, as opposed to proper urllib building with escaping.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    0.9+dfsg-2+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your python-httplib2 packages.
