Package : libxfont
Date : January 21, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in libxfont:

Stack-based buffer overflow in the bdfReadCharacters function in
bitmap/bdfread.c in X.Org libXfont 1.1 through 1.4.6 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code via a long string in a character name in a BDF font file
(CVE-2013-6462).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
