    Package        : pango1.0
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-1010238
    Debian Bug     : 933860
    
    Benno Fuenfstueck discovered that Pango, a library for layout and
    rendering of text with an emphasis on internationalization, is prone to a
    heap-based buffer overflow flaw in the pango_log2vis_get_embedding_levels
    function. An attacker can take advantage of this flaw for denial of
    service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.42.4-7~deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your pango1.0 packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of pango1.0 please refer to its
    security tracker page at:
