Overview

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Arbitrary Code Execution via a Gemfile that includes gem entries that use the git option with invalid values with a leading dash.

The attacker has to craft a directory containing a Gemfile file that declares a dependency that is located in a Git repository. This dependency has to have a Git URL in the form of -u./payload. This URL will be used to construct a git clone command but will be interpreted as the upload-pack argument. Then this directory needs to be shared with the victim, who then needs to run a command that evaluates the Gemfile, such as bundle lock.
