3. Description:

Pango is a library used for the layout and rendering of internationalized
text.

An input sanitization flaw, leading to an array index error, was found in
the way the Pango font rendering library synthesized the Glyph Definition
(GDEF) table from a font's character map and the Unicode property database.
If an attacker created a specially-crafted font file and tricked a local,
unsuspecting user into loading the font file in an application that uses
the Pango font rendering library, it could cause that application to crash.
(CVE-2010-0421)

Users of pango and evolution28-pango are advised to upgrade to these
updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
After installing this update, you must restart your system or restart your
X session for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
