Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.69819
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:1085
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:1085.

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. These packages provide the FreeType 2 font engine.

A flaw was found in the way the FreeType font rendering engine processed
certain PostScript Type 1 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-2011-0226)

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
