Gem Author:

From: ./kajam-1.0.3.rc2/vendor/plugins/dataset/lib/dataset/database/mysql.rb

Lines 18 and 24 expose the mysql user password to the process table via #{@...sword}.  If this Gem is used in the context of a rails application it maybe possible to inject commands via user supplied input as these variables are not sanitized before being passed to the shell.

16-      def capture(datasets)
17-        return if datasets.nil? || datasets.empty?
18:        `mysqldump -u #{@...rname} --password=#{@...sword} --compact --extended-insert --no-create-db --add-drop-table --quick --quote-names #{@...abase} > #{storage_path(datasets)}`
19-      end
21-      def restore(datasets)
22-        store = storage_path(datasets)
23-        if File.file?(store)
24:          `mysql -u #{@...rname} --password=#{@...sword} --database=#{@...abase} < #{store}`
25-          true
26-        end
