In the past, multiple os.popen() usage have been replaced with subprocess in the stdlib to prevent the risk of shell injection:

* bpo-22636: ctypes modules
* bpo-22637: uuid module

By the way, there is an open issue bpo-21557 "os.popen & os.system lack shell-related security warnings".

See also bpo-6490 "os.popen documentation is probably wrong" (fixed).
