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 parse_fond function in base/ftmac.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) or obtain sensitive information from process memory via a crafted FOND resource in a Mac font file.
