  process Location headers that specify a redirection to file: URLs. A
  remote attacker could exploit this to obtain sensitive information or
  cause a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 11.04.
  (CVE-2011-1521)

  It was discovered that SimpleHTTPServer did not use a charset parameter
  in the Content-Type HTTP header. An attacker could potentially exploit
  this to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks against Internet
  Explorer 7 users. This issue only affected Ubuntu 11.04. (CVE-2011-4940)
  
  It was discovered that Python distutils contained a race condition when
  creating the ~/.pypirc file. A local attacker could exploit this to
  obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2011-4944)
  
  It was discovered that SimpleXMLRPCServer did not properly validate its
  input when handling HTTP POST requests. A remote attacker could exploit
  this to cause a denial of service via excessive CPU utilization.
  (CVE-2012-0845)
  
  It was discovered that Python was susceptible to hash algorithm attacks.
  An attacker could cause a denial of service under certain circumstances.
  This updates adds the '-R' command line option and honors setting the
  PYTHONHASHSEED environment variable to 'random' to salt str and datetime
  objects with an unpredictable value. (CVE-2012-1150)";
