Description Adam Mariš 2015-09-11 13:55:49 UTC
If the Postscript stream contains a broken number-with-base (e.g. "8#garbage") the cursor doesn't advance and parse_encoding enters an infinite loop.

It seems to me that this is already fixed in all maintained versions of Fedora. Check it please.

Comment 4 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2015-09-14 07:23:38 UTC
Upstream freetype git suggests that this issue was addressed in freetype-2.5.3.

Therefore this issue is already fixed in all the maintained versions of Fedora.
