Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-1455-01
Posted Nov 17, 2011
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-1455-01 - FreeType is a free, high-quality, portable font engine that can open and manage font files. It also loads, hints, and renders individual glyphs efficiently. The freetype packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 provide both the FreeType 1 and FreeType 2 font engines. The freetype packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 provide only the FreeType 2 font engine. Multiple input validation flaws were found in the way FreeType processed CID-keyed fonts. If a specially-crafted font file was loaded by an application linked against FreeType, it could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.

3. Description:

FreeType is a free, high-quality, portable font engine that can open and
manage font files. It also loads, hints, and renders individual glyphs
efficiently. The freetype packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 provide
both the FreeType 1 and FreeType 2 font engines. The freetype packages for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 provide only the FreeType 2 font engine.

Multiple input validation flaws were found in the way FreeType processed
CID-keyed fonts. If a specially-crafted font file was loaded by an
application linked against FreeType, it could cause the application to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the application. (CVE-2011-3439)

Note: These issues only affected the FreeType 2 font engine.

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct these issues. The X server must be restarted
(log out, then log back in) for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

753799 - CVE-2011-3439 freetype: Multiple security flaws when loading CID-keyed Type 1 fonts
