Bug Description

.cbt forged file can be used to inject command line when opening it with atril. Since atril is sometimes the default PDF viewer for nautilus .cbt thumbnails, this command line can be executed even if the file is not actively opened by the user. See attachment for POC (this will open firefox on and touch a file named covfefe.evince).

Description: Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS
Release: 16.04

Atril version 1.12.2-1ubuntu0.3
