Description Josh Bressers 2007-03-27 15:06:09 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #234058 +++

iDEFENSE has reported a font related integer overflow.

CVE-2007-1351 describes an integer overflow in the way freetype parses a BDF
font file.

This flaw could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code as the user running
an application linked against freetype.

This flaw probably also affects RHEL 2.1, 3, and 4.

Ping on this flaw.  Can we get some new packages rolled.  I'd like to get an
errata to QA asap.
