Buffer overflow in (1) X.Org Xserver before 1.4.1, and (2) the libfont and libXfont libraries on some platforms including Sun Solaris, allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a PCF font with a large difference between the last col and first col values in the PCF_BDF_ENCODINGS table.
