    Pillow regression
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    USN-3090-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Pillow. The patch to fix CVE-2014-9601
    caused a regression which resulted in failures when processing certain
    png images. This update temporarily reverts the security fix for CVE-2014-9601
    pending further investigation.
    We apologize for the inconvenience.
    Original advisory details:
    It was discovered that a flaw in processing a compressed text chunk in
    a PNG image could cause the image to have a large size when decompressed,
    potentially leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2014-9601)
    Andrew Drake discovered that Pillow incorrectly validated input. A remote
    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)
