Background ========== FreeType is a portable font engine. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 media-libs/freetype < 2.1.10-r2 >= 2.1.10-r2 Description =========== Multiple integer overflows exist in a variety of files (bdf/bdflib.c, sfnt/ttcmap.c, cff/cffgload.c, base/ftmac.c). Impact ====== A remote attacker could exploit these buffer overflows by enticing a user to load a specially crafted font, which could result in the execution of arbitrary code. Workaround ========== There is no known workaround at this time.
