CVE-2010-0421

MEDIUM
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Array index error in the hb_ot_layout_build_glyph_classes function in pango/opentype/hb-ot-layout.cc in Pango before 1.27.1 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted font file, related to building a synthetic Glyph Definition (aka GDEF) table by using this font's charmap and the Unicode property database.
