Updated freetype2 packages fix security vulnerabilities

Publication date: 13 Sep 2015
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 4

Description

Updated freetype2 packages fix security vulnerabilities:

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 or hang, resulting in
a denial of service, or possibly expose uninitialized memory
(Savannah bugs 41309 and 41590).
