This vulnerability does not allow to overwrite or modify existing files and the attacker cannot control the executable flag of created files. However, third-party software may be affected by newly created configuration files, potentially allowing for code execution. The file name, including path separators, is displayed to the user, however, long file names are ellipsized in the middle of the file name, allowing the attacker to hide the malicious path separators, as long as the resulting file name has sufficient length. ### Advice All deployments should upgrade to a fixed version or apply the patch from commit 0c8d25b7a3e7a10a506f1e19b868fe9b0c761495. ### Credits Many thanks to CTurt (Google) for discovering and reporting this issue. ### Links - https://dino.im/security/cve-2021-33896/ - https://github.com/dino/dino/commit/0c8d25b7 - https://github.com/dino/dino/releases/tag/v0.2.1 - https://github.com/dino/dino/releases/tag/v0.1.2 - https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-33896 - https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2021-33896
