Six weeks ago a buffer overflow in socket.recvfrom_into() was reported. A bug fix was committed and pushed within four hours. Regrettably the issue was fixed so fast that it didn't draw enough attention. The Python Security Response Team has just learnt about the issue this morning when a demo exploit was posted. (In fact I almost spilled my first cup of coffee when the post hit my twitter stream.)

Vulnerable: 2.7.6, 3.1.5, 3.2.5
Fixed: 3.3.4+, 3.4b3+
Issue: http://bugs.python.org/issue20246

I have requested CVE-2014-1912 for the issue. Security releases of Python 2.7, 3.1 and 3.2 will be released soonish.

Don't worry, +chris frost. So far we haven't located any code that uses the vulnerable function except for unit tests.

Dear European Python communities,

we created a EuroPython 2014 flyer for promoting the conference at various other events over the next weeks and months. We encourage everyone going to related conferences or events spreading the word about EuroPython 2014. Just send an email to the EuroPython helpdesk with information about who you are (name and postal address), how many flyers you need and information about the event where you intend to distribute the flyer. 

In addition we ask all local Python user groups and communities to add the EuroPython 2014 logo to their website and a link to the EuroPython 2014 website.

The success of EuroPython 2014 also depends on you!

Spread the word!

Thank you very much in advance.

Python is a remarkably powerful dynamic programming language.
Introduction

The Zen of Python, by Tim Peters

Beautiful is better than ugly.
Explicit is better than implicit.
Simple is better than complex.
Complex is better than complicated.
Flat is better than nested.
Sparse is better than dense.
Readability counts.
Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
Although practicality beats purity.
Errors should never pass silently.
Unless explicitly silenced.
In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
Now is better than never.
Although never is often better than *right* now.
If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.
If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those!
