Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0500

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0500.

FreeType is a free, high-quality, and portable font engine.

Chris Evans discovered several integer underflow and overflow flaws in the
FreeType font engine. If a user loads a carefully crafted font file with a
program linked against FreeType, it could cause the application to crash or
execute arbitrary code as the user. While it is uncommon for a user to
explicitly load a font file, there are several application file formats
which contain embedded fonts that are parsed by FreeType. (CVE-2006-0747,
CVE-2006-1861, CVE-2006-3467)

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the FreeType font engine. An
application linked against FreeType can crash upon loading a malformed font
file. (CVE-2006-2661)

Users of FreeType should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
