FreeType is a True Type Font rendering library.
Greg MacManus of iDefense Labs has discovered an integer overflow in
the function bdfReadCharacters() when parsing BDF fonts.
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could entice a user to use a specially crafted BDF
font, possibly resulting in a heap-based buffer overflow and the remote
execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All FreeType users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-libs/freetype-2.1.10-r3&quot;</code>
