Description Pedro Giffuni 2016-09-15 21:52:19 UTC
Python on AOO 4.1.2 included a very outdated version of Python with known security vulnerabilities.
I suggest it is updated to at version 2.7.8.
For this we should merge r1722635 to the AOO 413 branch.

Note that updating Python to version 2.7.12 would involve also updating drastically OpenSSL so it is not convenient to consider it for a minor release.

Minor update patch

The OpenSSL repository was reorganized so use the new URL for old versions as well.

Sorry, this update is meant for a different bugzilla issue (openssl).
Comment 3 Ariel Constenla-Haile 2017-02-01 17:01:30 UTC
Not suitable for 4.1.4
Comment 4 Matthias Seidel 2020-09-26 10:24:15 UTC
Python is updated to 2.7.18 on all branches now.
Closing this issue now.
