Remote command injection in Ruby Gem kelredd-pruview 0.3.8

Description: "A gem to ease generating image previews (thumbnails) of various files."

https://rubygems.org/gems/kelredd-pruview

Remote commands can be executed if the file name contains shell meta characters.

./kelredd-pruview-0.3.0/lib/pruview/document.rb

In the following code snippet, we see the user input isn't sanitized for shell metacharacters. A malicious file with 
special characters in the filename could be used to execute commands as the local user.

69       run_system_command("convert -format jpg \"{source}[0]\" \"{ () tempfile path}\"", "Error processing postscript 
document")
85       colorspace = run_system_command("identify #{GLOBAL_CMD_ARGS} -format \"%r\" #{image.path}", "Error reading 
document colorspace")

function run_system_comand() passes user supplied input to the command line.

141     def run_system_command(command, error_message)
142       output = `{command}`
143       raise "{error_message}: error given {$?}\n{output}" if $? != 0
144       return output
145     end

In kelredd-pruview-0.3.0/lib/pruview/video.rb: Also the video encoding and scaling features are vulnerable as well:

27       run("#{FLVTOOL} -U #{target}", "Unable to add meta-data for #{target}.")

51       run(build_command(@source, target, width, height, get_info(info_yml), scale_static), "Una    ble to convert #{ 
() source} to #{target}.")

Run is defined as:

140     def run(command, error_message = "Unknown error.")
141       raise "Ffmpeg error: " + error_message + " - command: '#{command}'" if !system(command)
142     end

User controlled data is being sent to the command line with out any shell meta charatcers being escaped.

In kelredd-pruview-0.3.0/lib/pruview/video_image.rb:

13       run(build_command(source, "-ss 00:00:#{duration * 0.1}", 'mjpeg', target), "Unable to get     preview image 
for #{target}")

30 def self.build_command(source, time_str, format, target) 31 command = %Q{#{Video::FFMPEG} -i "#{source}"} 32 command 
+= " #{time_str}" 33 command += " -f #{format}" if !format.empty? 34 command += " -an -y #{target}" 35 end

where function run() is defined as:

 37     def self.run(command, error_message = "Unknown error.")
 38       raise "Ffmpeg error: " + error_message + " - command: '#{command}'" if !system(command)
 39     end 

In line 38 user supplied data is passed to the command line.
This vulnerability doesn't have a CVE assigned yet.
