Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2012:0094
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2012:0094.

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.

Multiple input validation flaws were found in the way FreeType processed
bitmap font files. If a specially-crafted font file was loaded by an
application linked against FreeType, it could cause the application to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the application. (CVE-2011-3256)

Multiple input validation flaws were found in the way FreeType processed
