Debian DSA-3894-1 : graphite2 - security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 101011
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in the Graphite font rendering engine which might result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed font file is processed.

Solution

Upgrade the graphite2 packages.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1.3.10-1~deb8u1.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed prior to the initial release.
