Workaround

None.

Description

  • CVE-2020-35653 (information disclosure)

In python-pillow before 8.1.0, PcxDecode has a buffer over-read when decoding a crafted PCX file because the user-supplied stride value is trusted for buffer calculations.

  • CVE-2020-35654 (arbitrary code execution)

In python-pillow before 8.1.0, TiffDecode has a heap-based buffer overflow when decoding crafted YCbCr files because of certain interpretation conflicts with LibTIFF in RGBA mode.

  • CVE-2020-35655 (denial of service)

In python-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.

Impact

A local malicious user might craft a malformed file to execute arbitrary code, read from memory or crash the application.
