Description Andrej Nemec 2017-06-14 03:23:06 EDT
An exploitable vulnerability exists in the Databook loading functionality of Tablib. A yaml loaded Databook can execute arbitrary python commands resulting in command execution. An attacker can insert python into loaded yaml to trigger this vulnerability.
