 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2010:236
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : freetype2
 Date    : November 16, 2010
 Affected: 2009.0, 2010.0, 2010.1, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 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 (CVE-2010-3814).
 
 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 (CVE-2010-3855).
 
 Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance
 Program. Please visit this link to learn more:
 http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149&products_id=490
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
