Just noticed this today on ruby's web site:

The fix is located here:

http://svn.ruby-lang.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi?view=revision&revision=37163

I don't see a CVE name associated with the announcement or commit, so
I don't believe one has been assigned.

Agreed, user controlled file creation in this manner is definitely a
security issue.

Please use CVE-2012-4522 for this issue.

Also please note that this email is not signed because I'm travelling
and don't have access to my GPG keys currently.
