a corpus of crash

a NULL pointer dereference vulnerability is triggered in FoFiType1C::convertToType0 when I use pdftops to convert pdf to ps file.

We can trace it with gdb:

#gdb -q ./utils/pdftops

We can see the code in PsOutputDev.cc:2655

 // convert it to a Type 0 font
  if ((fontBuf = font->readEmbFontFile(xref, &fontLen))) {
    if ((ffT1C = FoFiType1C::make(fontBuf, fontLen))) {
      if (globalParams->getPSLevel() >= psLevel3) {
	// Level 3: use a CID font
	ffT1C->convertToCIDType0(psName->getCString(), NULL, 0,
				 outputFunc, outputStream);
      } else {
	// otherwise: use a non-CID composite font
	ffT1C->convertToType0(psName->getCString(), NULL, 0,
			      outputFunc, outputStream);
      }
      delete ffT1C;
    }
    gfree(fontBuf);
  }

it creates a new FoFiType1C Object with null privateDicts and call convertToType0, and in line 907, it access privateDicts directly without checking if it's initialized.

FoFiType1C *FoFiType1C::make(char *fileA, int lenA) {
  FoFiType1C *ff;

  ff = new FoFiType1C(fileA, lenA, gFalse);
  if (!ff->parse()) {
    delete ff;
    return NULL;
  }
  return ff;
}

FoFiType1C::FoFiType1C(char *fileA, int lenA, GBool freeFileDataA):
  FoFiBase(fileA, lenA, freeFileDataA)
{
  name = NULL;
  encoding = NULL;
  privateDicts = NULL;
  fdSelect = NULL;
  charset = NULL;
  charsetLength = 0;
}

void FoFiType1C::convertToType0(char *psName, int *codeMap, int nCodes,
				FoFiOutputFunc outputFunc,
				void *outputStream) {

if (privateDicts[fd].hasFontMatrix) {
