Package : freetype2
Date : July 20, 2006
Affected: 2006.0, Corporate 3.0, Multi Network Firewall 2.0

Problem Description:

An additional overflow, similar to those corrected by patches for
CVE-2006-1861 was found in libfreetype. If a user loads a carefully
crafted font file with a program linked against FreeType, it could cause
the application to crash or execute arbitrary code as the user.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
