Debian DSA-2155-1 : freetype - several vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 51828
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Two buffer overflows were found in the Freetype font library, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade the freetype packages.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 2.3.7-2+lenny5.
