Title: Graphite: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201710-13)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Graphite, the worst of
which could lead to the remote execution of arbitrary code.
Graphite is a “smart font” system developed specifically to handle
the complexities of lesser-known languages of the world.
Vulnerable: < 1.3.10
Unaffected: >= 1.3.10
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Graphite. Please review
the referenced CVE identifiers for details.

privileges of the process, cause a Denial of Service condition, or have
other unspecified impacts.
There is no known workaround at this time.
