Improper Neutralization of Argument Delimiters in a Command ('Argument Injection')
The package cocoapods-downloader prior to 1.6.0 and 1.6.2 prior to 1.6.3 are vulnerable to Command Injection via git argument injection. When calling the Pod::Downloader.preprocess_options function and using git, both the git and branch parameters are passed to the git ls-remote subcommand in a way that additional flags can be set. The additional flags can be used to perform a command injection.
CWE-88 - Improper Neutralization of Argument Delimiters in a Command ('Argument Injection')
The software constructs a string for a command to executed by a separate component in another control sphere, but it does not properly delimit the intended arguments, options, or switches within that command string.
