CVE-2012-5670 freetype: Out-of-bounds write in _bdf_parse_glyphs() (#37907)
Last modified: 2016-03-04 07:15:18 EST
An out-of heap-based buffer write flaw was found in the way FreeType font rendering engine performed parsing of glyph information and relevant bitmaps for glyph bitmap distribution format (BDF). A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted font file, which once opened in an application linked against FreeType would lead to that application crash, or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the application.
Not Vulnerable. This issue did not affect the version of freetype as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.
This issue did not affect the version of freetype as shipped with Fedora 16 and Fedora 17.
