How to fix?

There is no fixed version for freetype.

Overview

freetype is a freely available software library to render fonts

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Out-of-bounds Read. The library does not check if a font contains a glyph name, allowing a malicious user to send a font file to cause a heap-based buffer over-read.
