Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in pip, which may allow remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or local attackers to conduct
symlink attacks.

Background
==========

pip is a tool for installing and managing Python packages.

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in pip. Please review the
CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could conduct a Man-in-the-Middle attack to cause pip

attacks to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user
running the application.

Workaround
