Survey King v0.3.0 does not filter data properly when exporting excel files, allowing attackers to execute arbitrary code or access sensitive information via a CSV injection attack.

Weakness

The software saves user-provided information into a Comma-Separated Value (CSV) file, but it does not neutralize or incorrectly neutralizes special elements that could be interpreted as a command when the file is opened by spreadsheet software.
