Comment 4 Tomas Hoger 2015-02-23 12:28:15 UTC
Upstream bug is:

Issue was fixed upstream in 2.5.4.

This CVE covers multiple integer overflow flaws in checks protecting against out-of-bounds reads, making it possible to bypass those check.  Crashing freetype using a specially-crafted font file may be possible because of this.
