    pillow vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Pillow could be made to crash if it opened a specially crafted file.
    
    Software Description:
    - pillow: Python Imaging Library
    
    Details:
    
    USN-4430-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Pillow. This update provides the
    corresponding updates for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
    
    Original advisory details:
    
     It was discovered that Pillow incorrectly handled certain image files. If
     a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially-crafted
     image file, a remote attacker could possibly cause Pillow to crash,
     resulting in a denial of service.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
      python3-pil                     7.0.0-4ubuntu0.1
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
