CVE-2014-9664

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

FreeType before 2.5.4 does not check for the end of the data during certain parsing actions, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted Type42 font, related to type42/t42parse.c and type1/t1load.c.
