Fedora 16 : t1lib-5.1.2-9.fc16 (2012-0289)

High Nessus Plugin ID 57716

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update fixes several security flaws in t1lib (flaws in AFM parser and when handling specially crafted Type1 fonts).

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.

Solution

Update the affected t1lib package.
