Description

An update for fontconfig is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

Fontconfig is designed to locate fonts within the system and select them according to requirements specified by applications.

Security Fix(es) :

  • It was found that cache files were insufficiently validated in fontconfig. A local attacker could create a specially crafted cache file to trigger arbitrary free() calls, which in turn could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2016-5384)

Red Hat would like to thank Tobias Stoeckmann for reporting this issue.

Additional Changes :

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3 Release Notes linked from the References section.
