Description

A problem was discovered in freetype, a FreeType2 font engine, which could allow the execution of arbitrary code via an integer overflow in specially crafted TTF files.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.2.1-5+etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.2.1-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your freetype package.
