Details

An updated pyOpenSSL package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The pyOpenSSL package provides a high-level wrapper around a subset of the
OpenSSL library for the Python programming language.

The update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, an attempt to use the "crypto.X509Extension" class caused the
calling application to terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. This
update applies a patch that addresses this issue, and using this class no longer
causes such applications to crash. (BZ#637398)

All users of pyOpenSSL are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
fixes this bug.
