<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted TTF
file, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running FreeType.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All FreeType 1 users should upgrade to an unaffected version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=media-libs/freetype-1.4_pre20080316-r2&quot;</code>
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since May 27, 2009. It is likely that your system is already
no longer affected by this issue.
