Affected Mageia releases: 8
CVE: CVE-2022-21712,
     CVE-2022-21716

GHSA-rv6r-3f5q-9rgx
The Twisted SSH client and server implementation naively accepted an
infinite amount of data for the peer's SSH version identifier.

GHSA-c2jg-hw38-jrqq and CVE-2022-24801
The Twisted Web HTTP 1.1 server, located in the twisted.web.http module,
parsed several HTTP request constructs more leniently than permitted by
RFC 7230

GHSA-92x2-jw7w-xvvx: twisted.web.client.getPage,
twisted.web.client.downladPage, and the associated implementation classes
(HTTPPageGetter, HTTPPageDownloader, HTTPClientFactory, HTTPDownloader)
have been removed because they do not segregate cookies by domain. They
were deprecated in Twisted 16.7.0 in favor of twisted.web.client.Agent.
