Insecure mongrel_rails invocation, unable to use "system" mongrel

Reported by Alexey I. Froloff | August 29th, 2008 @ 05:25 PM | in 2.x

This patch fixes two issues:

Using backticks is insecure, use Process::exec method in multiple argument form when "-d" option given.

load("mongrel_rails") fails if mongrel is not installed from gem, try CONFIG['bindir'] if at first we don't succeed.

    • State changed from “new” to “wontfix”

    the script/server will soon be replaced by a rackup command that won't use any system calls.
