 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2011:153
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libxfont
 Date    : October 17, 2011
 Affected: 2010.1, 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in libxfont:
 
 The LZW decompressor in (1) the BufCompressedFill function in
 fontfile/decompress.c in X.Org libXfont before 1.4.4 and (2)
 compress/compress.c in 4.3BSD, as used in zopen.c in OpenBSD before
 3.8, FreeBSD, NetBSD, FreeType 2.1.9, and other products, does not
 properly handle code words that are absent from the decompression
 table when encountered, which allows context-dependent attackers
 to trigger an infinite loop or a heap-based buffer overflow, and
 possibly execute arbitrary code, via a crafted compressed stream,
 a related issue to CVE-2006-1168 and CVE-2011-2896 (CVE-2011-2895).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
