July 22, 2020

pillow vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Pillow could be made to crash if it opened a specially crafted file.

Software Description:
- pillow: Python Imaging Library


It was discovered that Pillow incorrectly handled certain image files. If
a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially-crafted
image file, a remote attacker could possibly cause Pillow to crash,
resulting in a denial of service.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  python-pil                      5.1.0-1ubuntu0.3
  python3-pil                     5.1.0-1ubuntu0.3

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  python-pil                      3.1.2-0ubuntu1.4
  python3-pil                     3.1.2-0ubuntu1.4

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.

  CVE-2020-10177, CVE-2020-10378, CVE-2020-10994, CVE-2020-11538
