Package        : freetype
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2010-2497 CVE-2010-2498 CVE-2010-2499 CVE-2010-2500 CVE-2010-2519 CVE-2010-2520 CVE-2010-2527

Robert Swiecki discovered several vulnerabilities in the FreeType font 
library, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code if a
malformed font file is processed.

Also, several buffer overflows were found in the included demo programs.


For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.3.7-2+lenny2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.4.0-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your freetype packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.


Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 alias lenny
- --------------------------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, armel, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
