Proof of concept

There is a NULL pointer dereference in JBIG2Stream.cc:1316:

1311	    n = (int)(dataEnd - dataPtr);
1312	  } else {
1313	    n = nChars;
1314	  }
1315	  for (i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
1316	    buffer[i] = *dataPtr++ ^ 0xff;  //NULL dereference
1317	  }
1318	  return n;
1319	}

dataPtr is NULL. dataPtr is set at:

1235 void JBIG2Stream::reset() {
1258   if (pageBitmap) {
1259     dataPtr = pageBitmap->getDataPtr();
1260     dataEnd = dataPtr + pageBitmap->getDataSize();
1261   } else {

But in some scenarios pageBitmap->getDataPtr() returns NULL. And there is no check to deal with that case.

A PoC is attached. To reproduce the bug use:
