Poppler is a cross-platform PDF rendering library originally based on
Poppler and Xpdf are vulnerable to an integer overflow in the
StreamPredictor::StreamPredictor function, and a stack overflow in the
StreamPredictor::getNextLine function. The original vulnerability was

By enticing a user to view a specially crafted program with a
Poppler-based PDF viewer such as Gentoo's Xpdf, Epdfview, or Evince, a
