It was discovered the JBIG2Stream::readSegments function in the
Poppler library (prior to 0.24.5) does not properly handle
segExtraBytes values, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) via a crafted PDF that
triggers a segmentation fault caused by an improper format
control string. [1]

Upstream fix: 

Would you please allocate a CVE for this issue? Thanks.
