Description

Multiple flaws were discovered in the PFB and TTF font handling code
in freetype. If a user were tricked into using a specially crafted
font file, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user
privileges or cause the application linked against freetype to crash,
leading to a denial of service.
