Gregor Kopf of Secfault Security GmbH discovered that HSQLDB, a Java SQL
database engine, allowed the execution of spurious scripting commands in
.script and .log files. Hsqldb supports a “SCRIPT” keyword which is normally
used to record the commands input by the database admin to output such a
script. In combination with LibreOffice, an attacker could craft an odb
containing a “database/script” file which itself contained a SCRIPT command
where the contents of the file could be written to a new file whose location was
determined by the attacker.
A hsqldb1.8.0 security update has been released for Debian GNU/Linux 9 Extended LTS to address an issue that allowed the execution of spurious scripting commands in .script and .log files.
