Ruby on Rails Static Analysis Security Tool

Divide By Zero

Integer division by zero (0) in Ruby results in a ZeroDivisionError exception.

While not strictly a security issue, if an attacker can trigger a large number of exceptions it can harm site availability.

Brakeman warns when it finds potential division by zero with integers. Dividing a float by zero or 0.0 in Ruby results in Infinity, not an exception.
