    Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming
    Python 2.3 includes a copy of PCRE which is vulnerable to an integer
    overflow vulnerability, leading to a buffer overflow.
  <impact type="normal">
    An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by tricking a vulnerable
    Python application to compile a regular expressions, which could
    possibly lead to the execution of arbitrary code, a Denial of Service
    or the disclosure of sensitive information.
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    All Python 2.3 users should upgrade to the latest version:
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-lang/python-2.3.6-r4&quot;</code>
