A fix was merged and released today for the package which performs
kerberos authentication when using python-requests. Prior to this,
every version of the package did not properly handle mutual
authentication which means that the client did not verify that the
user was communicating with a trusted server. The version which
contains the fix is 0.6 and all prior versions are considered
This bug, however, prevented the mutual authentication code from being
executed, so it's possible that users think they're talking to a
trusted server, but they're not.
Make certain that responses always pass through handle_other() to provide mutual
authentication before returning them to the user.

Created python-requests-kerberos tracking bugs for this issue:
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1161651]
Affects: epel-all [bug 1161652]
This is a dupe of bug 1160540. I guess you just want to set the CVE ID on that other bug so your scripts find it properly.
This CVE Bugzilla entry is for community support informational purposes only as it does not affect a package in a commercially supported Red Hat product. Refer to the dependent bugs for status of those individual community products.
