POC file of the vulnerability

A memory corruption vulnerability was found in poppler which may lead to potential attack.

we can reproduce this vulnerability when we use pdftoppm to process malicious PDF files:

gzq@ubuntu:~/tmp/install/bin$ ./pdftoppm -q ./mal-gfx-memory-corruption.pdf 
Segmentation fault


gzq@ubuntu:~/tmp/install/bin$ gdb -q ./pdftoppm
Reading symbols from ./pdftoppm...done.
