Debian DLA-2167-1 : python-bleach security update

Description

A vulnerability was discovered in python-bleach, a whitelist-based HTML-sanitizing library. Calls to bleach.clean with an allowed tag with an allowed style attribute are vulnerable to a regular expression denial of service (ReDoS). For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 1.4-1+deb8u1. We recommend that you upgrade your python-bleach packages. NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
