Some more background on this:
Pyro uses the highly efficient internal pickling mechanism to
transport its data around, but that protocol is insecure.
You can choose to use a different, secure, serialization protocol.
More info is here: http://pyro.sourceforge.net/manual/9-security.html#pickle

There are a few other security issues to be aware of, they're
described in the same chapter.
