 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:006
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : freetype2
 Date    : February 1, 2013
 Affected: 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in freetype2:
 
 A Null pointer de-reference flaw was found in the way Freetype font
 rendering engine handled Glyph bitmap distribution format (BDF)
 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 (CVE-2012-5668).
 
 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 (CVE-2012-5669).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
