Upstream patch: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/aacid/poppler/commit/8051f678b3b43326e5fdfd7c03f39de21059f426

This is really a stack-overflow due to infinite loop and not really a stack-based overflow as suggested by the researcher. Also based on the attack vector this is really a borderline security flaw.
