The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the FreeType font engine
processed TTF font files. If a user loaded a carefully crafted font
file with a program linked against FreeType, it could cause the
application to crash or execute arbitrary code. While it is uncommon
for a user to explicitly load a font file, there are several
application file formats which contain embedded fonts that are parsed
by FreeType. (CVE-2007-2754)
