The Malformed CFF Vulnerability, along with the IOSurface Kernel Exploit, was used in Star/JailbreakMe 2.0. It is a stack overflow in the handling of CFF opcodes. Contrary to popular belief, it is not a vulnerability within the PDF parser, although the malformed font was placed in a PDF for exploitation.
