- Reproduces on Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (2019.012.20035) on Windows 10, with and without PageHeap enabled (more consistently with PageHeap, though).

- The crash occurs immediately after opening the PDF document, and is caused by an attempt to write data outside of an allocated buffer.

- It seems to be an off-by-one error, leading to an 8-byte overflow.

- Attached samples: poc.pdf (crashing file), original.pdf (original file).

- We have minimized the difference between the original and mutated files down to two bytes at offsets 0x3f523 and 0x40123 (0x65 => 0x75 and 0x15 => 0x05). These bytes reside inside of a Type 1 font stream.
