EulerOS 2.0 SP8 : python-pillow (EulerOS-SA-2021-2481)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 153604


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


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

- In Pillow before 8.1.0, SGIRleDecode has a 4-byte buffer over-read when decoding crafted SGI RLE image files because offsets and length tables are mishandled. (CVE-2020-35655)

- An issue was discovered in Pillow before 8.1.1. The PDF parser allows a regular expression DoS (ReDoS) attack via a crafted PDF file because of a catastrophic backtracking regex. (CVE-2021-25292)

- An issue was discovered in Pillow before 8.1.1. There is an out-of-bounds read in SGIRleDecode.c.

- Pillow through 8.2.0 and PIL (aka Python Imaging Library) through 1.1.7 allow an attacker to pass controlled parameters directly into a convert function to trigger a buffer overflow in Convert.c.

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.
