USN-2627-1: t1utils vulnerability
03 June 2015
t1utils could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened a specially crafted file.
- t1utils - Collection of simple Type 1 font manipulation programs
Jakub Wilk discovered that t1utils incorrectly handled certain malformed fonts.
If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted
font, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of
service, or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
