So I've deliberately not allocated one because we generally do not consider a crash of a user application like a PDF reader to be a security issue. However CVE does have a few cases where CVE names were allocated for such cases, so if any vendor here is going to treat this as a security issue let me know and I'll allocate a name for tracking purposes. Thanks, Mark
