Date : 2020-10-20
CVE-ID : CVE-2020-15999
Package : freetype2
Type : arbitrary code execution
Remote : Yes
Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-1254
The package freetype2 before version 2.10.4-1 is vulnerable to
arbitrary code execution.
Upgrade to 2.10.4-1.
# pacman -Syu "freetype2>=2.10.4-1"
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 2.10.4.
A heap buffer overflow has been found in freetype2 before 2.10.4.
Malformed TTF files with PNG sbit glyphs can cause a heap buffer
overflow in Load_SBit_Png as libpng uses the original 32-bit values,
which are saved in png_struct. If the original width and/or height are
greater than 65535, the allocated buffer won't be able to fit the
A remote user can serve malformed TTF files that can cause arbitrary
code execution on the affected host.
