Multiple Buffer and Integer Overflow Vulnerabilities in Python (python(1)) May Lead to a Denial of Service (DoS) or Allow Execution of Arbitrary Code

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:7800

Multiple integer overflows in imageop.c in Python before 2.5.3 allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted images that trigger heap-based buffer overflows. NOTE: this issue is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-4965.
