Defined in:
lib/rubocop/cop/security/open.rb

Overview

This cop checks for the use of `Kernel#open`.

`Kernel#open` enables not only file access but also process invocation by prefixing a pipe symbol (e.g., `open(“| ls”)`). So, it may lead to a serious security risk by using variable input to the argument of `Kernel#open`. It would be better to use `File.open`, `IO.popen` or `URI#open` explicitly.

Examples:

# bad
open(something)

# good
File.open(something)
IO.popen(something)
URI.parse(something).open
