CVE-2020-22083

NameCVE-2020-22083
Description** DISPUTED ** jsonpickle through 1.4.1 allows remote code execution during deserialization of a malicious payload through the decode() function. Note: It has been argued that this is expected and clearly documented behaviour. pickle is known to be capable of causing arbitrary code execution, and must not be used with un-trusted data.

Notes

CVE assigment seems bogus, jsonpickle clearly states "jsonpickle can execute arbitrary Python code.
Do not load jsonpickles from untrusted unauthenticated sources", so this works as expected
