The bug was apparantly intended to be kept private, but the bug changes were mailed to a public mailing list and Python developrs menitoned the bug fix in their public svn (including NEWS file, and reproducers): http://mail.python.org/pipermail/expat-bugs/2009-January/002781.html http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1990430&group_id=10127&atid=110127 http://svn.python.org/view?view=rev&revision=74429 https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=280615 While the expat bug was reported by Peter Valchev of Google, Python credits Ivan Krstić of Apple with the patch (submission). It might also be related to CVE-2009-2625 / FICORA #245608: https://www.cert.fi/en/reports/2009/vulnerability2009085.html As CERT-FI never released any details or test cases, I have no idea if we need a new CVE of if those two issues are the same.
