Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0403

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0403.

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

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the FreeType font engine
processed TTF font files. If a user loaded a carefully crafted font file
with a program linked against FreeType, it could cause the application to
crash or execute arbitrary code. 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-2007-2754)

Users of FreeType should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
a backported patch to correct this issue.

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

Risk factor : High
