    Software Description:
    - pillow: Python Imaging Library compatibility layer
    
    Details:

    potentially leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2014-9601)

    attacker could use this to cause Pillow to crash, resulting in a denial
    of service. (CVE-2014-3589)
    
    Eric Soroos discovered that Pillow incorrectly handled certain malformed
    FLI, Tiff, and PhotoCD files. A remote attacker could use this issue to
    cause Pillow to crash, resulting in a denial of service.
    (CVE-2016-0740, CVE-2016-0775, CVE-2016-2533)
