CVE-2017-11421 gnome-exe-thumbnailer: VBScript Injection when generating thumbnails for MSI files
Last modified: 2017-07-20 08:14:56 EDT
gnome-exe-thumbnailer before 0.9.5 is prone to a VBScript Injection when generating thumbnails for MSI files, aka the "Bad Taste" issue. There is a local attack if the victim uses the GNOME Files file manager, and navigates to a directory containing a .msi file with VBScript code in its filename.
This issue did not affect any of the Red Hat products as they did not include the gnome-exe-thumbnailer package.
