Because these issues have been fixed or will be fixed in multiple different versions of python, CVE-2013-1752 has been rejected and new CVEs will be assigned. Some of the issues are fixed in python 2.7.6, some will be in a later release.
Steps to Reproduce:
Since today no other distro updated Python 2.7.5 to 2.7.6 and since the situation is not clear yet and that not all issues are fixed in 2.7.6, I will wait, unless someone have a better idea.
By the way, fwang updated Python to 2.7.6 in Cauldron
All better now :o)
