Ruby gem fastreader-1.0.8 remote code exec

https://rubygems.org/gems/fastreader

if the url contains any ; characters code will be executed as the user when a web browser is launched.

for example if fastreader is fed http://www.g;id;.com id will be executed.

./fastreader-1.0.8/lib/entry_controller.rb

.strip only removes whitespace before and after the URL.

115 # open web browser
116 command = (ENV['FASTREADER_WEB'] || "open") + " {@current_entry.url.strip}"
117 `{command}`
