Package : freetype Version : 2.4.9-1.1+deb7u5 CVE ID : CVE-2016-10328 Debian Bug : 860303

The Freetype 2 font engine was vulnerable to an out-of-bounds write caused by a heap-based buffer overflow in the cff_parser_run function in cff/cffparse.c.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 2.4.9-1.1+deb7u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your freetype packages.
