No, but it often takes a long time for servers to get patched, so the
window for intruders is going to be open for a while. I'm trying to
a) how urgent and/or exploitable this is,
b) how I can check whether a given Python installation (running on a
server) has been patched, and
c) whether the security advisory downplays the risk more than it should,
since it appears that many Zope/Plone web servers are vulnerable.
