Language:

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in freetype2 :

The FT_Stream_EnterFrame function in base/ftstream.c in FreeType before 2.4.2 does not properly validate certain position values, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted font file (CVE-2010-2805).

Array index error in the t42_parse_sfnts function in type42/t42parse.c in FreeType before 2.4.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via negative size values for certain strings in FontType42 font files, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2010-2806).

FreeType before 2.4.2 uses incorrect integer data types during bounds checking, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted font file (CVE-2010-2807).

Buffer overflow in the Mac_Read_POST_Resource function in base/ftobjs.c in FreeType before 2.4.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted Adobe Type 1 Mac Font File (aka LWFN) font (CVE-2010-2808).

bdf/bdflib.c in FreeType before 2.4.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted BDF font file, related to an attempted modification of a value in a static string (CVE-2010-3053).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
