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.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSergey Gorbaty reported issues related to the FreeType font engine.
FreeType improperly handled certain malformed font files, allowing remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service when specially crafted font files were used.
For Debian 6 'Squeeze', these issues have been fixed in freetype version 2.4.2-2.1+squeeze6. We recommend you to upgrade your freetype packages.
