--- Comment #2 from Tomas Hoger <thoger at redhat.com> 2012-03-14 13:27:57 EDT ---
This flaw is in the TrueType bytecode interpreter (BCI) implementation.  BCI is
not enabled in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, and 6 freetype packages (it was
disabled by default upstream because of the patent concerns).  BCI support is
now enabled by default in upstream versions 2.4 and later, as relevant patents
expired: http://www.freetype.org/patents.html


Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect freetype packages as shipped with Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6, as they do not enable TrueType bytecode
