MDKSA-2006:181: python Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the python package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:181 (python).

A vulnerability in python's repr() function was discovered by Benjamin
C. Wiley Sittler. It was found that the function did not properly
handle UTF-32/UCS-4 strings, so an application that used repr() on
certin untrusted data could possibly be exploited to execute arbitrary
code with the rights of the user running the python application.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
