Description

Integer underflow in Freetype before 2.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a font file with an odd number of blue values, which causes the underflow when decrementing by 2 in a context that assumes an even number of values. (CVE-2006-0747)

Multiple integer overflows in FreeType before 2.2 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via attack vectors related to (1) bdf/bdflib.c, (2) sfnt/ttcmap.c, (3) cff/cffgload.c, and (4) the read_lwfn function and a crafted LWFN file in base/ftmac.c. (CVE-2006-1861)

Ftutil.c in Freetype before 2.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted font file that triggers a null dereference. (CVE-2006-2661)

In addition, a patch is applied to 2.1.10 in Mandriva 2006 to fix a serious bug in ttkern.c that caused some programs to go into an infinite loop when dealing with fonts that don't have a properly sorted kerning sub-table. This patch is not applicable to the earlier Mandriva releases.

Update :

The previous update introduced some issues with other applications and libraries linked to libfreetype, that were missed in testing for the vulnerability issues. The new packages correct these issues.
