17 Note: TTF bytecode interpreter is not enabled by default in the
Fedora freetype packages, therefore Fedora packages were not affected
by the TTF part of the CVE-2008-1808.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
