The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the FreeType
font rendering engine processed certain TrueType GX fonts. If a user
loaded a specially-crafted font file with an application linked
against FreeType, it could cause the application to crash or,
possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the application. (CVE-2010-3855)
Note: This issue only affects the FreeType 2 font engine.
The X server must be restarted (log out, then log back in) for this
update to take effect.
