Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2005-07-28 09:29:35 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #163918 - See that bug for
a reproducer +++

A broken PDF file is will create a file in /tmp and continue to fill it until
the filesystem is full.

This seems to affect the cups pdftops filter causing it not to fill disk space
but instead to crash; the crash hasn't yet been investigated in detail.
Comment 1 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2005-07-28 09:32:01 EDT
Also may affect RHEL3
No embargo date yet
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2005-07-28 10:01:05 EDT
Crash caused by faulting while writing out of bounds.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2005-08-01 09:29:37 EDT
Do we have an embargo date yet?

Also, what is the security severity of this? "Important"?
Comment 5 Josh Bressers 2005-08-01 09:34:38 EDT
There is no embargo date yet, and yes, the severity is important.

We keep the severity of issues in the status whiteboard field of bugzilla.
Comment 9 Josh Bressers 2005-08-09 11:26:05 EDT
Lifting embargo
