New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update backports security fixes from upstream version 2.3.6 - CVE-2008-1806, CVE-2008-1807 and CVE-2008-1808. For further details, see:
http://labs.idefense.com/intelligence/vulnerabilities/display.php?id=7 15 http://labs.idefense.com/intelligence/vulnerabilities/display.php?id=7 16 http://labs.idefense.com/intelligence/vulnerabilities/display.php?id=7 17 Note: TTF bytecode interpreter is not enabled by default in the Fedora freetype packages, therefore Fedora packages were not affected by the TTF part of the CVE-2008-1808.

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

Solution

Update the affected freetype package.
