Description Andrej Nemec 2018-08-28 08:29:33 UTC
In podofo 0.9.6, the function PoDoFo::PdfParser::ReadObjects() in base/PdfParser.cpp can cause the program to be aborted, because PoDoFo::PdfVecObjects::Reserve() in base/PdfVecObjects.h can be called with a large size value. Remote attackers could leverage this vulnerability to cause a denial-of-service via a crafted pdf file.
