Subject: Re: Possible CVE request: freetype: out-of-bounds
 stack-based read/write in cf2_hintmap_build() (incomplete fix for CVE-2014-2240)

Hey, original finder of both vulnerabilities here. I've sent a CVE request
to MITRE today for this and multiple other vulnerabilities fixed in 2.5.4,
I'll update this thread once they are assigned.
