FreeType before 2.4.2 uses incorrect integer data types during bounds
checking, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted
font file.

RHEL 6 (as of 6.7) ships freetype 2.3.11, which is covered by this CVE.

Would you mind to confirm if this affects RHEL6, and update https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/CVE-2010-2807 accordingly?

Thanks!
