Subject: podofo: NULL pointer dereference in PoDoFo::PdfColor::operator= (PdfColor.cpp)

Description:
podofo is a C++ library to work with the PDF file format.

A fuzz on it discovered a null pointer dereference. The upstream project denies me to open a new ticket. So, I just will forward this on the -users mailing list.

The complete ASan output:
