Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.61130
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0556
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0556.

FreeType is a free, high-quality, portable font engine that can open and
manage font files, as well as efficiently load, hint and render individual
glyphs.

Multiple flaws were discovered in FreeType's Printer Font Binary (PFB)
font-file format parser. If a user loaded a carefully crafted font-file
with a program linked against FreeType, it could cause the application to
crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2008-1806, CVE-2008-1807,
CVE-2008-1808)

Note: the flaw in FreeType's TrueType Font (TTF) font-file format parser,
covered by CVE-2008-1808, did not affect the freetype packages as shipped
in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5, as they are not compiled with TTF
Byte Code Interpreter (BCI) support.

Users of freetype should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to resolve these issues.

Solution:
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
