(FreeType: Buffer overflow)
Victor Stinner discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in the function
Get_VMetrics() in src/truetype/ttgload.c when processing TTF files with
a negative n_points attribute.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted TTF
file, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running FreeType.
There is no known workaround at this time.
