Xpdf-libpoppler StreamPredictor Exploit

This module exploits a integer overflow vulnerability in the xpdf and libpoppler software included in most linux distributions. The vulnerability is caused by a integer overflow in the predictor calculation, which causes a buffer overflow in the stack of the StreamPredictor::getNextLine() function. The exploit is triggered when an unsuspecting user opens a specially crafted file distributed via an email.
