Fail builds with known directory traversal config
Fail builds for an application that is using a known vulnerable version of Sprockets and has enabled a setting that will allow for a directory traversal:

config.assets.compile = true # Enables security vulnerability

Applications can deploy again by either upgrading their version of sprockets or by disabling dynamic asset compilation via setting:

config.assets.compile = false # Disables security vulnerability

If an app really needs to deploy but cannot upgrade their sprockets version, then they should know they are at extreme risk. It should be assumed that all their credentials and source code is in the hands of an attacker. They can do this manually via replacing `heroku/ruby` with ``, though note that this is should be temporary while a fix can be put in place, pinning to a specific buildpack version like this is not supported in the long term.
