    Robert Swiecki discovered several vulnerabilities in the FreeType font 
    library, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code if a
    malformed font file is processed.
    
    Also, several buffer overflows were found in the included demo programs.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.3.7-2+lenny2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.4.0-1.
