I'm not sure I understood what you're interested in, but basically we're fuzzying what a normal application would do with poppler, that if you're using the glib codepaths, ends up using cairo to do drawing/printing

Some random links

Are you happy with me publicly posting these crashes? Or prefer if i check the "This issue is confidential and should only be visible to team members with at least Reporter access." box in the gitlab issues?

Well that's what fuzzyign is for, find all the places you thought you were safe and user input is never safe :D

Yes, it's the same thing and not the same thing :D

I mean we're also running in oss-fuzz, but ours is "higher" level, i.e we're "just" fuzzing poppler, but it happens that some of the codepaths end up in cairo so it complains of those too.
