Being Paranoid with RubyGems Jump to Story

Fabien Catteau wrote a very interesting post on the discussion board at Gemnasium regarding malicious gems. Fabien goes through a few example scenarios of gems that can exploit your system as soon as you install them, but he also explains how to fetch gems to check them out without installing them. While he admits paranoia isn’t exactly practical, he does offer some recommendations to make the Rubygems infrastructure more secure, for instance by not allowing gems to install native C extensions by default.
