DescriptionCVE-2010-0421 libpangoft2 segfaults on forged font files
An input sanitization flaw, leading to an array index error, was found in the way the Pango font rendering library synthesized the Glyph Definition (GDEF) table from a font's character map and the Unicode property database. If an attacker created a specially crafted font file and tricked a local, unsuspecting user into loading the font file in an application that uses the Pango font rendering library, it could cause that application to crash. (CVE-2010-0421)
