Synopsis
========

T1Lib is vulnerable to a buffer overflow allowing for the user-assisted
execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

T1Lib is a library for rasterizing bitmaps from Adobe Type 1 fonts.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package           /  Vulnerable  /                     Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-libs/t1lib     < 5.0.2-r1                       >= 5.0.2-r1

Description
===========

Hamid Ebadi discovered a boundary error in the
intT1_EnvGetCompletePath() function which can lead to a buffer overflow
when processing an overly long filename.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a font file with a
specially crafted filename, possibly leading to the execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application
using T1Lib.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All T1Lib users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/t1lib-5.0.2-r1"

References
==========
