Title: Tablib: Arbitrary command execution (GLSA 201811-18)
A vulnerability in Tablib might allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary python commands.
Tablib is an MIT Licensed format-agnostic tabular dataset library,
written in Python. It allows you to import, export, and manipulate
tabular data sets.
Vulnerable: < 0.12.1
Unaffected: >= 0.12.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
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"
