A vulnerability in Tablib might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary python commands.
|Package||dev-python/tablib on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.12.1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.12.1|
Tablib is an MIT Licensed format-agnostic tabular dataset library, written in Python. It allows you to import, export, and manipulate tabular data sets.
A vulnerability was discovered in Tablib’s Databook loading functionality, due to improper input validation.
A remote attacker, by enticing the user to process a specially crafted Databook via YAML, could possibly execute arbitrary python commands with the privilege of the process.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Tablib users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-python/tablib-0.12.1"
