FreeType LWFN Files Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

FreeType is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because of an integer overflow that causes a buffer to be overrun with attacker-supplied data.

Exploiting this issue allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of applications that use the affected library. Failed exploit attempts will likely crash applications, denying service to legitimate users.

Versions prior to FreeType 2.2.1 are vulnerable.
