CVE-2015-1803 (retired)

Priority
Description
The bdfReadCharacters function in bitmap/bdfread.c in X.Org libXfont before
1.4.9 and 1.5.x before 1.5.1 does not properly handle character bitmaps it
cannot read, which allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of
service (NULL pointer dereference and crash) and possibly execute arbitrary
code via a crafted BDF font file.
