 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2010:156
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : freetype2
 Date    : August 22, 2010
 Affected: 2008.0, 2009.0, 2009.1, Corporate 4.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in freetype2:
 
 The FT_Stream_EnterFrame function in base/ftstream.c in FreeType
 before 2.4.2 does not properly validate certain position values, which
 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application
 crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted font file
 (CVE-2010-2805).
 
 Array index error in the t42_parse_sfnts function in type42/t42parse.c
 in FreeType before 2.4.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
 service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via
 negative size values for certain strings in FontType42 font files,
 leading to a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2010-2806).
 
 FreeType before 2.4.2 uses incorrect integer data types during bounds
 checking, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
 (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted
 font file (CVE-2010-2807).
 
 Buffer overflow in the Mac_Read_POST_Resource function in base/ftobjs.c
 in FreeType before 2.4.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
 service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute
 arbitrary code via a crafted Adobe Type 1 Mac Font File (aka LWFN)
 font (CVE-2010-2808).
 
 bdf/bdflib.c in FreeType before 2.4.2 allows remote attackers to cause
 a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted BDF font file,
 related to an attempted modification of a value in a static string
 (CVE-2010-3053).
 
 Unspecified vulnerability in FreeType 2.3.9, and other versions
 before 2.4.2, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
 via vectors involving nested Standard Encoding Accented Character
 (aka seac) calls, related to psaux.h, cffgload.c, cffgload.h, and
 t1decode.c (CVE-2010-3054).
 
 Packages for 2008.0 and 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended
 Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:
