(Red Hat Issues Fix for FreeType) Apple iOS Bugs Let Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code and Obtain Information and Let Local Users Bypass Authentication
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1026330
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1026330
CVE Reference:   CVE-2011-3439   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Nov 16 2011
Impact:   Disclosure of system information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via local system, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Apple iOS. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A physically local user can bypass authentication. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information. FreeType is affected by one vulnerability.

A remote user can create a specially crafted FreeType font that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2011-3439].

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will cause libinfo to disclose potentially sensitive information via DNS name lookups [CVE-2011-3441]. Erling Ellingsen of Facebook and Per Johansson of Blocket AB reported this vulnerability.

A physically local user can open an iPad 2 Smart Cover while the device is confirming power off in the locked state to bypass the authentication passcode request [CVE-2011-3440]. The user cannot launch apps or access data protected by Data Protection.

Impact:   A remote user can create content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on or obtain potentially sensitive information from the target user's system.

A physically local user can bypass the iPad 2 authentication passcode request in certain cases.

Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix for CVE-2011-3439 for FreeType.

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.

Multiple input validation flaws were found in the way FreeType processed
CID-keyed fonts. If a specially-crafted font file was loaded by an
application linked against FreeType, it could cause the application to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the application. (CVE-2011-3439)

Note: These issues only affected the FreeType 2 font engine.

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct these issues. 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
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259
