Debian Security Advisory DSA-1454-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Moritz Muehlenhoff
January 07, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : freetype
Vulnerability : integer overflow
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2007-1351

Greg MacManus discovered an integer overflow in the font handling of
libfreetype, a FreeType 2 font engine, which might lead to denial of
service or possibly the execution of arbitrary code if a user is tricked
into opening a malformed font.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.3.5-1.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.1-5+etch2.

For the old stable distribution (sarge) this problem will be fixed
soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your freetype packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you

apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.


Debian 4.0 (stable)
- -------------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
