$safe >= 2

(Mark Volkmann) #1

The pickaxe says "prohits loading program files from globally writable
locations" for $SAFE >= 2. Can somewhat clarify what counts as a
"globally writable location"? In the context of Windows, does it mean
that you can load program files from any directory of a local hard
drive unless it is shared?

AFAIK "globally writable" means having attribute "writable to all;
anyone can create/modify a file there.". Anyway, it has nothing to do
with sharing directories or serving pages - ruby does not have reliable
means to know what is shared.
