How to fix?

There is no fixed version for ipaddress.

Overview

ipaddress is an IPv4/IPv6 manipulation library

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Cryptographic Issues. The hash() methods of classes IPv4Interface and IPv6Interface had issue of generating constant hash values of 32 and 128 respectively causing hash collisions. The fix uses the hash() function to generate hash values for the objects instead of XOR operation.
