Security issues were discovered in python-reportlab, a Python library
for generating PDFs and graphics, which could lead to remote code
execution or authorization bypass.


    Ravi Prakash Giri discovered a remote code execution vulnerability
    via crafted XML document where ‘<unichar code="’ is followed by
    arbitrary Python code.

    This issue is similar to CVE-2019-17626.


    Karan Bamal discovered a Server-side Request Forgery (SSRF)
    vulnerability via ‘<img>’ tags.  New settings ‘trustedSchemes’ and
    ‘trustedHosts’ have been added as part of the fix/mitigation: they
