Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2017-07-19 13:24:44 UTC
From ${URL} :

cairo-truetype-subset.c in cairo 1.15.6 and earlier allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) because of
mishandling of an unexpected malloc(0) call.

Upstream bug:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
