The comments in state that there are security issues with using 

"SECURITY WARNING: This uses CGIHTTPServer and CGIHTTPServer is not secure.
It may execute arbitrary Python code or external programs. It should not be
used outside a firewall."

Why are these modules insecure? How can I run pywebsocket securely in a 
standalone way?
