Squiggle 1.7 SVG Browser Java Code Execution

This module abuses the SVG support to execute Java Code in the Squiggle Browser included in the Batik framework 1.7 through a crafted SVG file referencing a jar file. In order to gain arbitrary code execution, the browser must meet the following conditions: (1) It must support at least SVG version 1.1 or newer, (2) It must support Java code and (3) The "Enforce secure scripting" check must be disabled. The module has been tested against Windows and Linux platforms.
