Pango1.0 Security Update for Debian 10

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA-4496-1 Salvatore Bonaccorso
August 11, 2019
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : pango1.0
CVE ID : CVE-2019-1010238
Debian Bug : 933860

Benno Fuenfstueck discovered that Pango, a library for layout and
rendering of text with an emphasis on internationalization, is prone to a
heap-based buffer overflow flaw in the pango_log2vis_get_embedding_levels
function. An attacker can take advantage of this flaw for denial of
service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.42.4-7~deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your pango1.0 packages.
