Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-08-19 06:31:54 UTC
From ${URL} :

A denial of service vulnerability was reported in the Python Image Library 
and all versions of its fork, Pillow.  If a user were able to supply date to 
the routine or similar APIs they could cause the application to 
crash due to inadequate input validation in the IcnsImagePlugin module.  This 
has been corrected in upstream version 2.3.2 [1] and 2.5.2 [2]; a patch is 
available [3].


@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

I've bumped it to 2.5.3, which includes a fix for the similar CVE-2014-3598 (denial of service vulnerability against JPEG 2K images).
