Poppler PDF Rendering Library Page Class Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

The Poppler PDF rendering library is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability because the software fails to properly initialize a memory pointer.

Successfully exploiting this issue allows attackers to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of applications that use the library. Failed exploit attempts likely result in denial-of-service conditions.

Poppler 0.8.4 is vulnerable to this issue; other versions may also be affected.
