Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from Red Hat (01/09/2008)

Some implementations of the PDF specification erroneously allow page tree objects that refer back to themselves. As a result, an infinite loop could be created. We believe this could only result in a denial of service against the application. We do not consider a user-assisted DoS of a client application to be a security issue.
