  language.

  Multiple flaws were found in the Python rgbimg module. If an application
  written in Python was using the rgbimg module and loaded a
  specially-crafted SGI image file, it could cause the application to crash
  or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
  running the application. (CVE-2009-4134, CVE-2010-1449, CVE-2010-1450)
  
  This update also fixes the following bugs:
  
  * Python 2.3.4's time.strptime() function did not correctly handle the "%W"
  week number format string. This update backports the _strptime
  implementation from Python 2.3.6, fixing this issue. (BZ#436001)
  
  * Python 2.3.4's socket.htons() function returned partially-uninitialized
  data on IBM System z, generally leading to incorrect results. (BZ#513341)
  
  * Python 2.3.4's pwd.getpwuid() and grp.getgrgid() functions did not
  support the full range of user and group IDs on 64-bit architectures,
  leading to "OverflowError" exceptions for large input values. This update
  adds support for the full range of user and group IDs on 64-bit
  architectures. (BZ#497540)
  
  Users of Python should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
  backported patches to correct these issues.";
