New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Mateusz Jurczyk discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Freetype.
Opening malformed fonts may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 2.4.2-2.1+squeeze5.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems were fixed in version 2.4.9-1.1+deb7u1.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
