Yes the Python community does have a security mailing list, but as I
noted earlier, it appears to be moribund. And yes, the cpython GitHub
repository does have a security tab, but it reports "There aren’t any
published security advisories."

Thanks for the link, Dieter. I found the NIST search interface to be
buggy, and there doesn't seem to be a way to search the Mitre site
effectively to get vulnerabilities just for the Python language and
standard libraries. I've downloaded the entire corpus of JSON CVEs and
I'm digging into what would be involved in querying it myself.

Cheers,
Bob

I am active in the `Zope` community (a web application server
based on Python). This community has a security mailing list
for security related reports
and issues public CVE (= "Commun Vulnerabilities and Exposures") reports
(via a "GitHUB" service) as soon as a security risk has been resolved.

I expect that security risks for Python itself are handled in
a similar way (as, Python too, maintains its code on "GitHUB").
This means that the CVE dictionary should contain **ALL**
publicly announced security risk reports whether found by
the Pyhton community or packagers.

For details about CVE, read
"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Vulnerabilities_and_Exposures;.

That's my hope. Just haven't found it yet. :-}

Where do you get your python from?

You may find that the organisation that packages python that you use has such a 
list.

I did try entering "python security vulnerabilities" in the search box
of the python.org web site, but what I got back was "No results
found."
