Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2020-01-14 12:39:29 UTC
The old bundled pip is only used with Python 2.6. Python 2.6 is only supported to test whether user software works with it, not for security sensitive applications.

Any users affected by this are advised to stop using Python 2.6. We don't have capacity to fix medium and low security issues that only affect Python 2.6. For this reason, virtualenv Python 2.6 support is removed from future Fedora versions starting with Fedora 31.

To whoever it may concern: If this security issue really affects your tests, please reopen this bugzilla.
