|Description||The ssl.match_hostname function in CPython (aka Python) before 2.7.9 and 3.x before 3.3.3 does not properly handle wildcards in hostnames, which might allow man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof servers via a crafted certificate.|

Vulnerable and fixed packages
The table below lists information on source packages.
The information below is based on the following data on fixed versions.
[wheezy] - python3.2 <no-dsa> (Minor issue, too intrusive to backport)
[squeeze] - python3.1 <no-dsa> (Minor issue)
[wheezy] - python2.7 <no-dsa> (Minor issue, too intrusive to backport)
[wheezy] - python2.6 <no-dsa> (Minor issue, too intrusive to backport)
[squeeze] - python2.6 <no-dsa> (Minor issue)
[squeeze] - python2.5 <no-dsa> (Minor issue)
The CVE is only about refusing multiple wildcards. Backporting that part only is not so difficult.
