The FoFiType1::parse function in fofi/FoFiType1.cc in the PDF parser in poppler, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a PDF file with a crafted Type1 font that contains a negative array index, which bypasses input validation and which triggers memory corruption (CVE-2010-3704).
