CVE-2016-1964, CVE-2016-1965, CVE-2016-1966)

Multiple security flaws were found in the graphite2 font library shipped

to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running Firefox. (CVE-2016-1977, CVE-2016-2790, CVE-2016-2791,
CVE-2016-2792, CVE-2016-2793, CVE-2016-2794, CVE-2016-2795, CVE-2016-2796,
