Acronis True Image 2021 includes a Vulnerability Scanner.  Scan results are reporting the critical need to update Python 2.7.16 due to CVE-2019-9948 CVE-2019-9636 however from initial research, Python 2.7.16 is part of the macOS Big Sur and any attempt of removing will cripple the OS.  I have also installed Python 3.9.2.  Apple tech support claims Python is NOT part of the OS and safe to uninstall.   Looking for clarification.
