Keynote 2.0.2

CVE-ID: CAN-2005-1408
Available for: Keynote 2, Keynote 2.0.1
Impact: A maliciously modified Keynote presentation could be constructed to retrieve files from the local system.
Description: With a specially crafted Keynote presentation and the use of the "keynote:" URI handler, it is possible that local files could be read and then sent to an arbitrary network location. This issue has been addressed in two ways: References to external resources have been limited, and the registration of the "keynote:" URI handler has been removed. This issue does not affect Keynote versions prior to Keynote 2. Credit to David Remahl ( for reporting this issue.
