Description Dhananjay Arunesh 2020-02-03 08:23:15 UTC
An issue was discovered in Poppler through 0.78.0. There is a divide-by-zero error in the function SplashOutputDev::tilingPatternFill at SplashOutputDev.cc.


Comment 1 Dhananjay Arunesh 2020-02-03 08:24:27 UTC
Created poppler tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1797456]

Comment 3 Mauro Matteo Cascella 2020-02-10 15:13:35 UTC
Function tilingPatternFill() was defined in SplashOutputDev.cc in Poppler upstream version 0.17.0 with commit https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/poppler/poppler/commit/abf167af.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 ship older versions of Poppler (0.5.4 and 0.12.4 respectively) that do not include the vulnerable function and, consequently, are not affected by this flaw.

Comment 4 Mauro Matteo Cascella 2020-02-10 15:17:15 UTC

This flaw did not affect the versions of Poppler as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6, as they did not include the vulnerable code.
