Description Josh Bressers 2010-12-06 19:02:38 UTC
Mozilla added the OTS font sanitizing library to prevent downloadable fonts
from exposing vulnerabilities in the underlying OS font code. This library
mitigates against several issues independently reported by Red Hat Security
Response Team member Marc Schoenefeld and Mozilla security researcher
Christoph Diehl.
