Updated python-suds package fixes security vulnerability

Publication date: 21 Jul 2013
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 2 , 3
CVE: CVE-2013-2217

Description

An insecure temporary directory use flaw was found in the way python-suds
performed initialization of its internal file-based URL cache (predictable
location was used for directory to store the cached files). A local attacker
could use this flaw to conduct symbolic link attacks, possibly leading to
their ability for example the SOAP .wsdl metadata to redirect queries to a
different host, than originally intended (CVE-2013-2217).
