Comment 1 Stephen Herr 2018-08-16 16:46:25 UTC
MITRE description:

Integer overflow in the CIDAFM function in X.Org 6.8.2 and XFree86 X server allows local users to execute arbitrary code via crafted Adobe Font Metrics (AFM) files with a modified number of character metrics (StartCharMetrics), which leads to a heap-based buffer overflow.
