SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionGreg MacManus discovered an integer overflow in the font handling of libfreetype, a FreeType 2 font engine, which might lead to denial of service or possibly the execution of arbitrary code if a user is tricked into opening a malformed font.
SolutionUpgrade the freetype packages.
For the old stable distribution (sarge) this problem will be fixed soon.
For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.2.1-5+etch2.
