How to fix?

Upgrade Debian:9 python2.7 to version 2.7.1-7 or higher.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream python2.7 package. See How to fix? for Debian:9 relevant versions.

The urllib and urllib2 modules in Python 2.x before 2.7.2 and 3.x before 3.2.1 process Location headers that specify redirection to file: URLs, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via a crafted URL, as demonstrated by the file:///etc/passwd and file:///dev/zero URLs.
