execution.

CVE-2017-1000158

    CPython (aka Python) is vulnerable to an integer overflow in the
    PyString_DecodeEscape function in stringobject.c, resulting in
    heap-based buffer overflow (and possible arbitrary code execution)

CVE-2018-1060

    python is vulnerable to catastrophic backtracking in pop3lib's
    apop() method. An attacker could use this flaw to cause denial of
    service.

CVE-2018-1061

    python is vulnerable to catastrophic backtracking in the
    difflib.IS_LINE_JUNK method. An attacker could use this flaw to
    cause denial of service.

CVE-2018-1000802

    Python Software Foundation Python (CPython) version 2.7 contains a
    CWE-77: Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in a
    Command ('Command Injection') vulnerability in shutil module
    (make_archive function) that can result in Denial of service,
    Information gain via injection of arbitrary files on the system or
    entire drive. This attack appear to be exploitable via Passage of

2.7.9-2+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your python2.7 packages.
