Exploitable: local, remote
Date: May 17, 2014
Bug(s): #268976, #352087, #357067
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Pango, the worst of
which allow execution of arbitrary code or Denial of Service.
Pango is an internationalized text layout and rendering library
Vulnerable: < 1.28.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.28.3-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Pango. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A context-dependent attacker could entice a user to load specially
crafted text using an application linked against Pango, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Pango users should upgrade to the latest version:
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=x11-libs/pango-1.28.3-r1"
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since March 18, 2011. It is likely that your system is already
no longer affected by this issue.
