Description:
    Previous versions of the xorg-x11 package have weaknesses parsing
    fonts, related to the freetype vulnerabilities described in the
    rPSA-2006-0100-2 advisory.  These weaknesses are known to allow at
    least a denial of service attack, and may allow executing arbitrary
    code as the root user.  After updating, it will be necessary to
    restart the X server in order for the update to take effect.
