Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : pango (MDVSA-2009:158-3)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 40359


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Integer overflow in the pango_glyph_string_set_size function in pango/glyphstring.c in Pango before 1.24 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a long glyph string that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

This update corrects the issue.

Update :

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers


Update the affected packages.
