GLSA-200710-12 : T1Lib: Buffer overflow
High Nessus Plugin ID 27047
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200710-12 (T1Lib: Buffer overflow)
Hamid Ebadi discovered a boundary error in the intT1_EnvGetCompletePath() function which can lead to a buffer overflow when processing an overly long filename.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a font file with a specially crafted filename, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application using T1Lib.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll T1Lib users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/t1lib-5.0.2-r1'
