CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2007:0403

FreeType is a free, high-quality, portable font engine.

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the FreeType font engine
processed TTF font files. If a user loaded a carefully crafted font file
with a program linked against FreeType, it could cause the application to
crash or execute arbitrary code. While it is uncommon for a user to
explicitly load a font file, there are several application file formats
which contain embedded fonts that are parsed by FreeType. (CVE-2007-2754)

Users of FreeType should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
a backported patch to correct this issue.
