+Fix CVE-2016-5384 (double-free resulting in arbitrary code execution):
+
+<https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-5384>
+
+Copied from upstream code repository:
+
+<https://cgit.freedesktop.org/fontconfig/commit/?id=7a4a5bd7897d216f0794ca9dbce0a4a5c9d14940>

+Subject: Properly validate offsets in cache files.
+
+The cache files are insufficiently validated. Even though the magic
+number at the beginning of the file as well as time stamps are checked,
+it is not verified if contained offsets are in legal ranges or are
+even pointers.
+
+The lack of validation allows an attacker to trigger arbitrary free()
+calls, which in turn allows double free attacks and therefore arbitrary
+code execution. Due to the conversion from offsets into pointers through
+macros, this even allows to circumvent ASLR protections.
+
+This attack vector allows privilege escalation when used with setuid
+binaries like fbterm. A user can create ~/.fonts or any other
+system-defined user-private font directory, run fc-cache and adjust
+cache files in ~/.cache/fontconfig. The execution of setuid binaries will
+scan these files and therefore are prone to attacks.
+
+If it's not about code execution, an endless loop can be created by
+letting linked lists become circular linked lists.
+
+This patch verifies that:
+
+- The file is not larger than the maximum addressable space, which
+  basically only affects 32 bit systems. This allows out of boundary
+  access into unallocated memory.
+- Offsets are always positive or zero
+- Offsets do not point outside file boundaries
+- No pointers are allowed in cache files, every "pointer or offset"
+  field must be an offset or NULL
+- Iterating linked lists must not take longer than the amount of elements
+  specified. A violation of this rule can break a possible endless loop.
+
+If one or more of these points are violated, the cache is recreated.
+This is current behaviour.
+
+Even though this patch fixes many issues, the use of mmap() shall be
+forbidden in setuid binaries. It is impossible to guarantee with these
+checks that a malicious user does not change cache files after
+verification. This should be handled in a different patch.
