Ldoce Ruby Gem:

Easily interface with the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English API from Ruby:

NB currently mac only as it depends on the afplay command.
https://rubygems.org/gems/ldoce

https://github.com/markburns/ldoce

Ldoce passes an mp3 url to commandline for audio output of the pronunciation of a dictonary word:

If the URL or filename for the mp3 files contain shell metacharacters code can be executed remotely as the client:

[./ldoce-0.0.2/lib/ldoce/word.rb]

     if mp3?
       unless File.exists? filename
         command = "curl #{mp3_url} -silent > {filename}"
         `{command}`
       end
       `afplay #{filename}`
     end

This vulnerability has been assigned CVE-ID CVE-2013-1911
