Subject: Rgpg 0.2.2 Ruby Gem Remote Command Injection

Title: Rgpg 0.2.2 Ruby Gem Remote Command Injection

Date: 7/31/2013

Advisory Author: Larry W. Cashdollar, @_larry0

CVE: CVE-2013-4203


"A simple Ruby wrapper around gpg command for file encryption.
rgpg is a simple API for interacting with the gpg tool. It is specifically designed to avoid altering global keyring state by creating temporary public and secret keyrings on the fly for encryption and decryption."

The following code snippet does not sanitize user supplied input before passing it to the System () function for execution. If this ApI is used in the context of a rails application remote commands can be injected into the shell.
in lib/rgpg/gpg_helper.rb:

 68       begin
 69         outputfile.close
 70         result = system("#{commandline} > #{output_file.path} 2>&1")
 71       ensure
