PDF splash handling heap overflow
Dirk Mueller told vendor-sec about a buffer overflow issue in the xpdf
codebase when handling splash images.
The proposed patch is attachment 123745 [details]
I'm starting to think we don't use splash anywhere in the code.
We definitely build a static convenience library, but we don't appear to link it
to any binary.
Furthermore, running nm on the binaries shows no symbols with the name "Splash"
gpdf must use its own rendering code.
