USN-4430-1: Pillow vulnerabilities

22 July 2020

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



  • 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
Ubuntu 16.04

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