The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


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.


Update the affected freetype package.
