Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2007-2343
2007-09-28 21:21:40.573461
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : t1lib
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 5.1.1
Release     : 3.fc7
URL         : ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/libs/graphics
Summary     : PostScript Type 1 font rasterizer
Description :
T1lib is a rasterizer library for Adobe Type 1 Fonts. It supports
rotation and transformation, kerning underlining and antialiasing. It
does not depend on X11, but does provides some special functions for
X11.

AFM-files can be generated from Type 1 font files and font subsetting
is possible.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This is most likely not exploitable on Fedora, due to FORTIFY_SOURCE protection, as the overflow is strcat() call which is protected.

This update has a patch that avoids the call where the overflow would occur.
