Integer overflow in JBIG2Stream.cc:
An integer overflow leading to heap-based buffer overflow was found in the poppler library. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause applications that use poppler (such as Evince) to crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2017-9776 )
