Microsoft fixes faulty OpenType security patch

Quote:
Microsoft has reissued a patch intended to fix a serious security flaw in implementations of the OpenType font, after the original version of the patch rendered the font unreadable for many users of PowerPoint and other applications.

The problematic patch came out as part of Patch Tuesday on 11 December, affecting users of PowerPoint, Quark Xpress and Coreldraw. It made it impossible for those programs to render OpenType characters at a size greater than 15pt.

On Thursday, Microsoft reissued the MS12-078 patch, which also fixed a flaw in implementations of the TrueType font.
