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.
