Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Important: freetype security update Advisory ID: RHSA-2008:0556-01 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2008-0556.html Issue date: 2008-06-20 CVE Names: CVE-2008-1806 CVE-2008-1807 CVE-2008-1808 =====================================================================
  1. Summary:

Updated freetype packages that fix various security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64 RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

FreeType is a free, high-quality, portable font engine that can open and manage font files, as well as efficiently load, hint and render individual glyphs.

Multiple flaws were discovered in FreeType's Printer Font Binary (PFB) font-file format parser. If a user loaded a carefully crafted font-file with a program linked against FreeType, it could cause the application to crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2008-1806, CVE-2008-1807, CVE-2008-1808) Note: the flaw in FreeType's TrueType Font (TTF) font-file format parser, covered by CVE-2008-1808, did not affect the freetype packages as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5, as they are not compiled with TTF Byte Code Interpreter (BCI) support.

Users of freetype should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_58_10188

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/): 450768 - CVE-2008-1806 FreeType PFB integer overflow 450773 - CVE-2008-1807 FreeType invalid free() flaw 450774 - CVE-2008-1808 FreeType off-by-one flaws
