EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 : python-pillow (EulerOS-SA-2020-1244)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 134533


The remote EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the python-pillow package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A memory disclosure vulnerability was found in python-pillow. Functions in map.c failed to check for image overflow and check that an offset parameter was within bounds, allowing a crafted image to cause a crash or disclosure of memory.(CVE-2016-9189)

- 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)

- 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.
