Ruby on Rails Static Analysis Security Tool

Brakeman 5.2.3 Released

Changes since 5.2.2:

  • Fix error with hash shorthand syntax (#1700)
  • Match order of interactive options with help message (Rory O’kane)

Hash Shorthand Syntax

Parsing shorthand hash syntax like this was added with RubyParser 3.19:

thing = 1


but Brakeman needed to handle it properly, too.


Interative Options

Rory O’kane updated the ordering of options in the help message for interative ignore so the help message matches the order of the options in the prompt!
