Overview

freetype is a freely available software library to render fonts

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Out-of-bounds Write. A malicious user can pass a cff font file to the application to cause a heap-based buffer overflow that can lead to an out-of-bounds write. This can cause the application to crash or overwrite values in the heap.
