Hi Francisco

None of the listed vulnerabilities affect any of the shell functionality.

Regarding the Upgrade Plans

We can classify the bundled python libraries in 2 groups: the ones that come with standard python distribution (like setup tools) and the ones that are additionally included (like cryptography).

We only bundle a complete python distribution on those shell packages targeted for platforms that not necessarily have a compatible python version available in the system.

The bundled python package is upgraded normally by 2 reasons:

- The bundled version contains vulnerabilities that affect the shell.
- A newer version of python contains functionality desired for the shell.

On the other hand, we bundle the additional libraries in all cases. These packages are upgraded in a regular basis release after release even if they don't have vulnerabilities affecting the shell. The coming releases use openssl 3.0.9 and cryptography 39.0.2 which are out of the affected versions.
