Description

Jakub Wilk discovered that t1utils incorrectly handled certain malformed fonts. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted font, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
