CVE-2017-17529 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2017-17529):
  af/util/xp/ut_go_file.cpp in AbiWord 3.0.2-2 does not validate strings
  before launching the program specified by the BROWSER environment variable,
  which might allow remote attackers to conduct argument-injection attacks via
  a crafted URL.


@Maintainers please confirm if we are affected.

Thank you
