Ruby Version Manager escape command execution
|ruby-manager-escape-command-execution (64746)||High Risk|
Ruby Version Manager could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the system, caused by the failure to filter terminal escape sequences. By persuading a victim to open a malicious file containing escape sequences, a remote attacker could inject the escape sequences and execute malicious characters on the victim's system.
