CVE-2019-17514

Priority
Description
library/glob.html in the Python 2 and 3 documentation before 2016 has
potentially misleading information about whether sorting occurs, as
demonstrated by irreproducible cancer-research results. NOTE: the effects
of this documentation cross application domains, and thus it is likely that
security-relevant code elsewhere is affected. This issue is not a Python
implementation bug, and there are no reports that NMR researchers were
specifically relying on library/glob.html. In other words, because the
older documentation stated "finds all the pathnames matching a specified
pattern according to the rules used by the Unix shell," one might have
incorrectly inferred that the sorting that occurs in a Unix shell also
occurred for glob.glob. There is a workaround in newer versions of
Willoughby nmr-data_compilation-p2.py and nmr-data_compilation-p3.py, which
call sort() directly.
