EulerOS 2.0 SP5 : python-pillow (EulerOS-SA-2019-2226)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 130688


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the python-pillow package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Buffer overflow in the ImagingPcdDecode function in PcdDecode.c in Pillow before 3.1.1 and Python Imaging Library (PIL) 1.1.7 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PhotoCD file.(CVE-2016-2533)

- Pillow before 3.3.2 allows context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information by using the 'crafted image file' approach, related to an 'Integer Overflow' issue affecting the Image.core.map_buffer in map.c component.(CVE-2016-9189)

- Buffer overflow in the ImagingFliDecode function in libImaging/FliDecode.c in Pillow before 3.1.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted FLI file.(CVE-2016-0775)

- Buffer overflow in the ImagingLibTiffDecode function in libImaging/TiffDecode.c in Pillow before 3.1.1 allows remote attackers to overwrite memory via a crafted TIFF file.(CVE-2016-0740)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected python-pillow packages.
