FreeBSD : FreeType 2 -- Heap overflow vulnerability (de2fab2d-0a37-11dc-aae2-00304881ac9a)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25306


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


Integer signedness error in truetype/ttgload.c in Freetype 2.3.4 and earlier might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted TTF image with a negative n_points value, which leads to an integer overflow and heap-based buffer overflow.


Update the affected package.
