Package : python3.4 Version : 3.4.2-1+deb8u5 CVE ID : CVE-2019-9948

The urllib library in Python ships support for a second, not well known URL scheme for accessing local files ("local_file://"). This scheme can be used to circumvent protections that try to block local file access and only block the well-known "file://" schema. This update addresses the vulnerability by disallowing the "local_file://" URL scheme.

This update also fixes another regresssion introduced in the update issued as DLA-1835-1 that broke installation of libpython3.4-testsuite.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version 3.4.2-1+deb8u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your python3.4 packages.
