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: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThis update of the freetype2 library fixes two security issues :
- An infinite loop in parse_encoding in t1load.c (CVE-2014-9745, bsc#945849)
- Use of uninitialized memory in ps_parser_load_field, t42_parse_font_matrix and t1_parse_font_matrix (CVE-2014-9747, bsc#947966)
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
