Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Pango, the worst of which
allow execution of arbitrary code or Denial of Service.

Background
==========

Pango is an internationalized text layout and rendering library

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 x11-libs/pango < 1.28.3-r1 >= 1.28.3-r1

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Pango. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A context-dependent attacker could entice a user to load specially
crafted text using an application linked against Pango, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process or a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Pango users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=x11-libs/pango-1.28.3-r1"

Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these
packages.

NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since March 18, 2011. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
