Apple Security Advisory 2011-07-15-2 - A buffer overflow exists in FreeType's handling of TrueType font files. Viewing a maliciously crafted PDF file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. A signedness issue exists in FreeType's handling of Type 1 fonts. Viewing a maliciously crafted PDF file may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution. An invalid type conversion issue exists in the use of IOMobileFrameBuffer queueing primitives, which may allow malicious code running as the user to gain system privileges.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2010-236 - Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in freetype2. An error within the "Ins_SHZ()" function in src/truetype/ttinterp.c when handling the "SHZ" bytecode instruction can be exploited to cause a crash and potentially execute arbitrary code via a specially crafted font. An error exists in the "ft_var_readpackedpoints()" function in src/truetype/ttgxvar.c when processing TrueType GX fonts and can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted font.
