Details

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.
