Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : freetype (multiple_buffer_errors_vulnerabilities_in)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80614

Synopsis

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party software.

Description

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates :

- FreeType before 2.4.11 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and crash) via vectors related to BDF fonts and the improper handling of an 'allocation error' in the bdf_free_font function. (CVE-2012-5668)

- The _bdf_parse_glyphs function in FreeType before 2.4.11 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to BDF fonts and an incorrect calculation that triggers an out-of-bounds read.
(CVE-2012-5669)

- The _bdf_parse_glyphs function in FreeType before 2.4.11 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write and crash) via vectors related to BDF fonts and an ENCODING field with a negative value. (CVE-2012-5670)

Solution

Upgrade to Solaris 11.1.18.5.0.
