Debian Security Advisory DSA-2428-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Moritz Muehlenhoff March 07, 2012 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : freetype Vulnerability : several Problem type : local Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2012-1133 CVE-2012-1134 CVE-2012-1136 CVE-2012-1142 CVE-2012-1144

Mateusz Jurczyk from the Google Security Team discovered several vulnerabilties in Freetype's parsing of BDF, Type1 and TrueType fonts, which could result in the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed font file is processed.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.2-2.1+squeeze4. The updated packages are already available since yesterday, but the advisory text couldn't be send earlier.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your freetype packages.
