Description Mark J. Cox 2007-02-09 09:50:37 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #228002 +++

Some shell characters are not escaped in hyperlinks.  If a victim loads a OO
file that contains a malicious hyperlink it could run shell commands as the
victim if they click on it.  

However this issue is mitigated somewhat as you can't do whitespace and many
special characters, so you're really limited to running single existing commands
with no arguments as the unprivileged user.


Already public in the bugs, but will be announced on 20070227
