CVE-2008-1806

Status Candidate

Overview

Integer overflow in FreeType2 before 2.3.6 allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted set of 16-bit length values within the Private dictionary table in a Printer Font Binary (PFB) file, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2008-121

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory - Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in FreeType's Printer Font Binary (PFB) font-file format parser. If a user were to load a carefully crafted font file with a program linked against FreeType, it could cause the application to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code. The updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue. The patches used to correct the problem on Corporate Server 4.0 and Corporate 3.0 contained a problem where certain fonts would not be displayed and would cause applications, such as drakfont, to crash. This update corrects the regression.
