Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.61611
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-643-1 (freetype)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-643-1 (freetype)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to freetype
announced via advisory USN-643-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

Multiple flaws were discovered in the PFB and TTF font handling code
in freetype. If a user were tricked into using a specially crafted
font file, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user
privileges or cause the application linked against freetype to crash,
leading to a denial of service.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libfreetype6 2.1.10-1ubuntu2.5

Ubuntu 7.04:
libfreetype6 2.2.1-5ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 7.10:
libfreetype6 2.3.5-1ubuntu4.7.10.1

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
libfreetype6 2.3.5-1ubuntu4.8.04.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart your session to
effect the necessary changes.
