Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.69191
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0889
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0889.

FreeType is a free, high-quality, portable font engine that can open and
manage font files. It also loads, hints, and renders individual glyphs
efficiently. The freetype packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 provide
both the FreeType 1 and FreeType 2 font engines. The freetype packages for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 provide only the FreeType 2 font engine.

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the FreeType font
rendering engine processed certain TrueType GX fonts. If a user loaded a
specially-crafted font file with an application linked against FreeType, it
could cause the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2010-3855)

Note: This issue only affects the FreeType 2 font engine.

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue. The X server must be restarted (log
out, then log back in) for this update to take effect.

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
