Hi all,

we had Problems opening certain Pdfs causing PdfReader.Open() to enter an infinite Loop. Readers show this Documents as empty.
We found out that these Pdfs were created by a faulty library which inserted a Thousands-Separator in the Parameters of /MediaBox (the Pages need to be fairly large to show this behavior (>A4)). I have attached a Document which I prepared to show this faulty Parameters.
Debug-Builds already show an Assertion in this Situation complaining about an unexpected Symbol. Wouldn't it make sense to throw an Exception if a malformed Pdf is detected?
