+++ 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.
Also may affect RHEL3
No embargo date yet
Crash caused by faulting while writing out of bounds.
Do we have an embargo date yet?
Also, what is the security severity of this? "Important"?
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.
