Description D'juan McDonald (domhnall) 2017-09-18 01:44:16 UTC
from {URL}:

In Poppler 0.59.0, a floating point exception exists in the isImageInterpolationRequired() function in via a crafted PDF document.

In Poppler 0.59.0, memory corruption occurs in a call to Object::streamGetChar in Object.h after a repeating series of Gfx::display, Gfx::go, Gfx::execOp, Gfx::opShowText, and Gfx::doShowText calls (aka a infinite loop).

In Poppler 0.59.0, a floating point exception occurs in Splash::scaleImageYuXd() in, which may lead to a potential attack when handling malicious PDF files.

@maintainer(s), if stabilization is needed please call for it, thank you.
