Debian DLA-1013-1 : graphite2 security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 101238

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security 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.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.3.10-1~deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your graphite2 packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
