Weak ElGamal key parameters in PublicKey/ElGamal.py allow attackers to obtain sensitive information by reading ciphertext:
lib/Crypto/PublicKey/ElGamal.py in PyCrypto through 2.6.1 generates weak ElGamal key parameters, which allows attackers to obtain sensitive information by reading ciphertext data (i.e., it does not have semantic security in face of a ciphertext-only attack). The Decisional Diffie-Hellman (DDH) assumption does not hold for PyCrypto's ElGamal implementation. (CVE-2018-6594)
Run yum update python-crypto to update your system.
