USN-3282-2: FreeType vulnerabilities
17 May 2017
FreeType could be made to crash or run programs if it opened a specially crafted font file.
- freetype - FreeType 2 is a font engine library
It was discovered that FreeType did not correctly handle certain malformed
font files. If a user were tricked into using a specially crafted font
file, a remote attacker could cause FreeType to crash, resulting in a
denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
