FreeBSD : FreeType 2 -- Multiple Vulnerabilities (4fb43b2f-46a9-11dd-9d38-00163e000016)

High Nessus Plugin ID 33419

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 FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Secunia reports :

- An integer overflow error exists in the processing of PFB font files. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a PFB file containing a specially crafted 'Private' dictionary table.

- An error in the processing of PFB font files can be exploited to trigger the 'free()' of memory areas that are not allocated on the heap.

- An off-by-one error exists in the processing of PFB font files. This can be exploited to cause a one-byte heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted PFB file.

- An off-by-one error exists in the implementation of the 'SHC' instruction while processing TTF files. This can be exploited to cause a one-byte heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted TTF file.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities may allow execution of arbitrary code.

Solution

Update the affected package.
