SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionAn integer overflow flaw was found in the way the FreeType font engine processed TTF font files. If a user loaded a carefully crafted font file with a program linked against FreeType, it could cause the application to crash or execute arbitrary code. While it is uncommon for a user to explicitly load a font file, there are several application file formats which contain embedded fonts that are parsed by FreeType. (CVE-2007-2754)
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
