Description Josh Bressers 2010-07-22 19:32:45 UTC
While fixing CVE-2010-2527 Marek Kašík discovered an additional buffer
overflow in the ftmulti demo program.

The demo application could crash or, possibly, lead to the execution of
arbitrary code if an attacker were able to get a victim to load a malicious
font file.

This is CVE-2010-2541
