    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
    bitmap. (CVE-2020-15999)
