All uses of the
FileUtils.rm_rf method should be made secure by setting the
:secure option to true.
From the online docs:
This method causes local vulnerability if one of parent directories or removing directory tree are world writable (including /tmp, whose permission is 1777), and the current process has strong privilege such as Unix super user (root), and the system has symbolic link. For secure removing, read the documentation of remove_entry_secure carefully, and set :secure option to true. Default is :secure=>false.
NOTE: This method calls remove_entry_secure if :secure option is set.
