Package        : freetype
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2011-3256 
Debian Bug     : 646120

It was discovered that missing input sanitising in Freetype's glyph
handling could lead to memory corruption, resulting in denial of service
or the execution of arbitrary code.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.3.7-2+lenny7.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.4.2-2.1+squeeze2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.4.7-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your freetype packages.
