       An update that fixes one vulnerability is now available.
    
    Description:
    
       This update for python-numpy fixes the following issues:
    
       Security issue fixed:
    
       - CVE-2019-6446: Set allow_pickle to false by default to restrict loading
         untrusted content (bsc#1122208). With this update we decrease the
         possibility of allowing remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by
         misusing numpy.load(). A warning during runtime will show-up when the
         allow_pickle is not explicitly set.
    
       NOTE: By applying this update the behavior of python-numpy changes, which
       might break your application. In order to get the old behaviour back, you
       have to explicitly set `allow_pickle` to True. Be aware that this should
       only be done for trusted input, as loading untrusted input might lead to
       arbitrary code execution.
