Package        : python-ipaddress
Version        : 1.0.17-1+deb10u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2020-14422

Martin Wennberg discovered that python-ipaddress, a backport of Python 3's
ipaddress module, improperly computed hash values in the IPv4Interface and
IPv6Interface classes, which might allow a remote attacker to cause a
denial of service if an application is affected by the performance of a
dictionary containing IPv4Interface or IPv6Interface objects.  The attacker
can then cause many dictionary entries to be created.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your python-ipaddress packages.
