Class Method Details

.redirectable?(uri1, uri2) ⇒ Bool

Whether #open should follow a redirect.

Inspiration from: gist.github.com/1271420 Relevant issue: bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/3719 Source here: github.com/ruby/ruby/blob/trunk/lib/open-uri.rb

This test is intended to forbid a redirection from http://… to file:///etc/passwd, file:///dev/zero, etc. CVE-2011-1521 https to http redirect is also forbidden intentionally. It avoids sending secure cookie or referrer by non-secure HTTP protocol. (RFC 2109 4.3.1, RFC 2965 3.3, RFC 2616 15.1.3) However this is ad hoc. It should be extensible/configurable.
