Detail

It was discovered that missing input sanitising in Freetype's processing of CID-keyed fonts could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 2.3.7-2+lenny8.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.2-2.1+squeeze3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.4.8-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your freetype packages.
