Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:132
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : libxfont
Date : July 9, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated libxfont packages fix security vulnerabilities:

Ilja van Sprundel discovered that libXfont incorrectly handled font
metadata file parsing. A local attacker could use this issue to cause
libXfont to crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code in order to
gain privileges (CVE-2014-0209).

Ilja van Sprundel discovered that libXfont incorrectly handled X Font
Server replies. A malicious font server could return specially-crafted
data that could cause libXfont to crash, or possibly execute arbitrary
code (CVE-2014-0210, CVE-2014-0211).
