Updated freetype2 packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 02 May 2017
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 5
CVE: CVE-2016-10328 , CVE-2017-8105 , CVE-2017-8287

Description

It was discovered that a heap-based buffer overflow existed in the
FreeType library. 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 (CVE-2016-10328).

FreeType 2 before 2017-03-24 has an out-of-bounds write caused by a
heap-based buffer overflow related to the t1_decoder_parse_charstrings
function in psaux/t1decode.c (CVE-2017-8105).

FreeType 2 before 2017-03-26 has an out-of-bounds write caused by a
heap-based buffer overflow related to the t1_builder_close_contour
function in psaux/psobjs.c (CVE-2017-8287).
