Subject Name: freetype Subject Summary: TrueType Font (TTF) Rendering Library Subject Home: http://freetype.sourceforge.net/ Subject Versions: * >= 2.3.4 Vulnerability Id: CVE-2007-2754 Vulnerability Scope: global (not OpenPKG specific) Attack Feasibility: run-time Attack Vector: remote network Attack Impact: arbitrary code execution

Description:

    A vulnerability caused by an integer signedness error was found     [0] by Victor Stinner in the font rendering library Freetype [1],     versions up to and including 2.3.4. The vulnerability might allow     remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a specially crafted     TrueType Font (TTF) file with a negative "n_points" value, which     leads to an integer overflow and heap-based buffer overflow [2].
