Debian Bug     : 652996

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in t1lib, a Postscript Type 1
font rasterizer library, some of which might lead to code execution
through the opening of files embedding bad fonts.

CVE-2010-2642
	A heap-based buffer overflow in the AFM font metrics parser
	potentially leads to the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2011-0433
	Another heap-based buffer overflow in the AFM font metrics
	parser potentially leads to the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2011-0764
	An invalid pointer dereference allows execution of arbitrary
	code using crafted Type 1 fonts.

CVE-2011-1552
	Another invalid pointer dereference results in an application
	crash, triggered by crafted Type 1 fonts.

CVE-2011-1553
	A use-after-free vulnerability results in an application
	crash, triggered by crafted Type 1 fonts.

CVE-2011-1554
	An off-by-one error results in an invalid memory read and
	application crash, triggered by crafted Type 1 fonts.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 5.1.2-3+lenny1.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
