CVE-2010-0421 libpangoft2 segfaults on forged font files
An input sanitization flaw, leading to an array index error, was found
in the way the Pango font rendering library synthesized the Glyph
Definition (GDEF) table from a font's character map and the Unicode
property database. If an attacker created a specially crafted font
file and tricked a local, unsuspecting user into loading the font file
in an application that uses the Pango font rendering library, it could
cause that application to crash. (CVE-2010-0421)
After installing this update, you must restart your system or restart
