(Red Hat Issues Fix) FreeType Buffer Overflow in ft_var_readpackedpoints() Lets Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1024746
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1024746
CVE Reference:   CVE-2010-3855   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Nov 16 2010
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 2.4.3 and prior versions
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in FreeType. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted font file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a buffer overflow in ft_var_readpackedpoints() and execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user or application.

The vulnerability resides in 'src/truetype/ttgxvar.c'.

Impact:   A remote user can create a file that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix.

The Red Hat advisory is available at:

3. Description:

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. The freetype packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 provide
both the FreeType 1 and FreeType 2 font engines. The freetype packages for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 provide only the FreeType 2 font engine.

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the FreeType font
rendering engine processed certain TrueType GX fonts. If a user loaded a
specially-crafted font file with an application linked against FreeType, it
could cause the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2010-3855)

Note: This issue only affects the FreeType 2 font engine.

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue. The X server must be restarted (log
out, then log back in) for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
