./lang/python35, Interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.5.4, Package name: python35-3.5.4, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented
programming language that combines remarkable power with
very clear syntax. For an introduction to programming in
Python you are referred to the Python Tutorial. The
Python Library Reference documents built-in and standard
types, constants, functions and modules. Finally, the
Python Reference Manual describes the syntax and semantics
of the core language in (perhaps too) much detail.

Python's basic power can be extended with your own modules
written in C or C++. On most systems such modules may be
dynamically loaded. Python is also adaptable as an exten-
sion language for existing applications. See the internal
documentation for hints.

This package provides Python version 3.5.x.

Python 3.5.4:

* bpo-30730: Prevent environment variables injection in subprocess on Windows. \ 
Prevent passing other environment variables and command arguments.
* bpo-30694: Upgrade expat copy from 2.2.0 to 2.2.1 to get fixes of multiple \ 
security vulnerabilities including: CVE-2017-9233 (External entity infinite loop \ 
DoS), CVE-2016-9063 (Integer overflow, re-fix), CVE-2016-0718 (Fix regression \ 
bugs from 2.2.0’s fix to CVE-2016-0718) and CVE-2012-0876 (Counter hash \ 
flooding with SipHash). Note: the CVE-2016-5300 (Use os- specific entropy \ 
sources like getrandom) doesn’t impact Python, since Python already gets \ 
entropy from the OS to set the expat secret using XML_SetHashSalt().
* bpo-30500: Fix urllib.parse.splithost() to correctly parse fragments. For \ 
example, splithost('//') now correctly returns the \ 
host, instead of treating @evil.com as the host in an authentification \ 
* bpo-29591: Update expat copy from 2.1.1 to 2.2.0 to get fixes of CVE-2016-0718 \ 
and CVE-2016-4472. See https://sourceforge.net/p/expat/bugs/537/ for more \
