 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2010:235
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : freetype2
 Date    : November 16, 2010
 Affected: Corporate 4.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in freetype2:
 
 An error exists in the "ft_var_readpackedpoints()" function in
 src/truetype/ttgxvar.c when processing TrueType GX fonts and can
 be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially
 crafted font (CVE-2010-3855).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
