Updated python-eventlet packages fix security vulnerabilityPublication date: 18 Jun 2021
Affected Mageia releases : 7 , 8
Updated python-eventlet packages fix a security vulnerability: Eventlet is a concurrent networking library for Python. A websocket peer may exhaust memory on Eventlet side by sending very large websocket frames. Malicious peer may exhaust memory on Eventlet side by sending highly compressed data frame. A patch in version 0.31.0 restricts websocket frame to reasonable limits. As a workaround, restricting memory usage via OS limits would help against overall machine exhaustion, but there is no workaround to protect Eventlet process (CVE-2021-21419).
