CVE-2012-5669

Status Candidate

Overview

The _bdf_parse_glyphs function in FreeType before 2.4.11 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to BDF fonts and an incorrect calculation that triggers an out-of-bounds read.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2013-039

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2013-039 - A null pointer de-reference flaw was found in the way Freetype font rendering engine handled Glyph bitmap distribution format fonts. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted BDF font file, which once processed in an application linked against FreeType would lead to that application crash. An out-of heap-based buffer read flaw was found in the way FreeType font rendering engine performed parsing of glyph information and relevant bitmaps for glyph bitmap distribution format (BDF). A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted BDF font file, which once opened in an application linked against FreeType would lead to that application crash. An out-of heap-based buffer write flaw was found in the way FreeType font rendering engine performed parsing of glyph information and relevant bitmaps for glyph bitmap distribution format (BDF). A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted font file, which once opened in an application linked against FreeType would lead to that application crash, or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the application.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2013-006 - A Null pointer de-reference flaw was found in the way Freetype font rendering engine handled Glyph bitmap distribution format fonts. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted BDF font file, which once processed in an application linked against FreeType would lead to that application crash. An out-of heap-based buffer read flaw was found in the way FreeType font rendering engine performed parsing of glyph information and relevant bitmaps for glyph bitmap distribution format. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted BDF font file, which once opened in an application linked against FreeType would lead to that application crash. The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-0216-01
Posted Feb 1, 2013
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-0216-01 - 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. A flaw was found in the way the FreeType font rendering engine processed certain Glyph Bitmap Distribution Format fonts. If a user loaded a specially-crafted font file with an application linked against FreeType, it could cause the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. The X server must be restarted for this update to take effect.
