CVE-2019-9852

Priority
Description
LibreOffice has a feature where documents can specify that pre-installed
macros can be executed on various script events such as mouse-over,
document-open etc. Access is intended to be restricted to scripts under the
share/Scripts/python, user/Scripts/python sub-directories of the
LibreOffice install. Protection was added, to address CVE-2018-16858, to
avoid a directory traversal attack where scripts in arbitrary locations on
the file system could be executed. However this new protection could be
bypassed by a URL encoding attack. In the fixed versions, the parsed url
describing the script location is correctly encoded before further
processing. This issue affects: Document Foundation LibreOffice versions
prior to 6.2.6.
