Description

make-pdf-javascript.py is a set of tools written by Didier Stevens, that allow one to create a simple PDF document with embedded JavaScript that will execute upon opening of the PDF document. It’s essentially glue-code for the mPDF.py module which contains a class with methods to create headers, indirect objects, stream objects, trailers and XREFs.

Javascript

Let's embed a javascript in a PDF file:

Once executed, the PDF warns the user and opens the URL with the default browser if the message is confirmed:
