    Greg MacManus discovered an integer overflow in the font handling of
    libfreetype, a FreeType 2 font engine, which might lead to denial of
    service or possibly the execution of arbitrary code if a user is tricked
    into opening a malformed font.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.5-1.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
