Python programming language hurries out update to tackle remote code vulnerability
The Python Software Foundation (PSF) has rushed out Python 3.9.2 and 3.8.8 to address two notable security flaws, including one that is remotely exploitable- but in practical terms can only be used to knock a machine offline. Upgrade now!
PSF is urging its legion of Python users to upgrade systems to Python 3.8.8 or 3.9.2, in particular to address the remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability that's tracked as CVE-2021-3177.
The project expedited the release after receiving unexpected pressure from some users who were concerned over the security flaw.
