Unquoted query generated by through-association scope #1361

wants to merge 1,218 commits into from

Through-association owner's primary key wasn't quoted. This generates invalid SQL if the record wasn't saved yet (i.e. the primary key's value is nil) and you try to access the relation (should return an empty result).

Real-world example of generated sql:

SELECT `tags`.*
  FROM `tags`
  INNER JOIN `taggings` ON `tags`.id = `taggings`.tag_id
    ((`taggings`.taggable_id = ) AND (`taggings`.taggable_type = 'Ticket'))
    AND (taggings.context = 'tags' AND taggings.tagger_id IS NULL)

Can you provide a patch with a test?, thanks.

stid replied Feb 9, 2011

Guys, this was released (not patched) in 3.0.4, I'm getting this error in authologic when he try to update the last_login column after a new session/user is created and in a bunch of tests.

Update: Sorry, my mistake, I was using the 30-stable branch. This was not released in 3.0.4 final.

This breaks when using the home_run gem since Date#dup (Date.allocate) is not implemented: "TypeError: allocator undefined for Date"

What exactly is being achieved by duping the Date? Is there another way this can be achieved?

Actually, looks like it's being reported as a bug on home_run:

adzap replied Mar 1, 2011

Although that is an issue for home_run to fix, as dup is valid on a Date instance. I have submitted a ticket which removes the dup because it is not necessary. No in-place change is made to the time value which could effect the original_time value.


You do a to_s on the before_type_cast value which will convert the Time instance back to a string. So this does not test that a string value is stored for the before_type_cast when the original_time is a valid time string.

Ruby on Rails member

You're absolutely right.
Just pushed the fix. 65e08cf
Thanks for your advice!

adzap replied Feb 7, 2011

No problem. But I am surprised that this change actually passes. From the code, if the time string is successfully parsed, the time variable will be Time instance. Therefore when (time || original_time) is evaluated, it will pass the time instance to be stored by write_attribute. So when you call before_type_cast you should get the same Time instance, and not the original string value.

Am I missing something?


There should be a case here for an Arel::Sql::Literal to pass thru untouched?


I'll be committing a patch that adds :SQLServerAdapter too.

IMHO is a better option to have auto_link return a sanitized string.
This code returns insecure content:
auto_link("<script>alert('malicious')</script>", :sanitize => true)
which I think is the not expected result

I propose to avoid the vulnerability and at the same time give a better use to the existent (but not documented) :sanitize option.

binmode disables newline conversion, which is going to be really bad for Windows users.

Ruby on Rails member

@fxn can you provide a test that exercises that problem? If we don't use binmode, we will have encoding conversion errors (which these these will show).

Ruby on Rails member
fxn replied May 16, 2011

@tenderlove yes saw the ticket, but this fix seems too expensive, it breaks portable newlines for writing to the log. You know, the C stdlib I/O layer in MRI won't do LF -> CRLF conversion, and thus log files produced on Windows computers will appear as one long single line there. Same happens in other interpreters because they imitate MRI even if the underlying platform do not follow the C way to handle portable newlines (eg JRuby).

Ruby on Rails member

@luislavena care to comment on this?


@fxn, the only edtior that is going to be affected by this is Notepad, and see that I remarked editor

Console tools, even type will properly process single \n without the return carrier (\r)

So @tenderlove, I'm Luis Lavena, and I approve this commit.

Ruby on Rails member
fxn replied May 18, 2011

@luislavena but in my view Rails is not a good citizen on Windows writing newlines in text files that do not follow the platform convention. Even if some editors may display correctly a file with CRLF on Unix, if Rails writed CRLFs one would say WTF is this?

A portable program writes portable newlines, that's my point.

So, if there was a solution that outputs portable newlines and only works with the encodings, that would be better in my view.

Ruby on Rails member
fxn replied May 18, 2011

Let me add that most programs and scripts will get the lines correctly because albeit the transformation CRLF -> LF that most I/O libraries perform when reading is not happening, your line-oriented program will see the LFs anyway (when working with text the CR never comes up to your program string buffers on Windows working in text mode).

But as I said before I am not concerned about particular uses of the log, my concern is about using a convention that is not the one of the runtime platform. That's not good. Good programs are portable. Writing non-native newlines is a broken window that will show up somewhere.

Ruby on Rails member
fxn replied May 18, 2011

This is what I mean 9d8e2fb.

Set a binary encoding, but work in text mode to keep Rails portable.

@fxn, if you wanted the log be friendly with the platform, then you would strip ANSI coloring in the first place, since Windows can't handle ANSI coloring by default.

Even if you have CRLF, the log files still have these non ASCII characters that do not display properly in the platform.

Is that been taken care? I believe not, I still see ANSI escape codes in my log files, which are not printable characters, notepad makes a mess and user still gets annoyed by them.

So, you're compromising the performance of something against the half portability of something that is not doing the right thing.

Doing what you're doing in 9d8e2fb might not have the desired results under certain encoding configurations of the user.

But, heck, seems you have better idea of encodings :-)

Ruby on Rails member
fxn replied May 18, 2011

@luislavena I am not addressing all portability issues in Rails in this thread. Not sure what ANSI escape sequences have to do here.

All I am saying is that if we can fix that ticket without compromising portable newlines, that solution is better. Do you really find this point of view strange?

If the new patch breaks something, it is not certainly the test case for that ticket. If the new patch breaks some particular combination of things I'd really want to know, and still find a solution that uses text mode if possible.

Regarding whether ANSI has been taken care of, there's a flag config.colorize_logging. And if that didn't exist, it should be fixed anyway. In my view portability is a goal for programs that are going to run in several platforms. If possible.

I really find amazing that the reaction to the comments above is not "oh of course that was an undesired side-effect, let's see whether we can fix and still write in text mode somehow". I really need to defend that being portable is desirable if possible?


why? it couldn't hurt anyone, and looked rather nice

:+1: Nice one! Congratulations on your first commit in Rails.


IMHO is possible to use 0.2.7, ins't it?

Ruby on Rails member

Yes. The ~> constraint lets you use "0.2.x" that is greater than or equal to "0.2.6".

It seems something is wrong with your pull request. :P

Heh, nevermind, misread line 544 and realized once I posted this comment. :heart:

The problem with this implementation (compared to rails2) is that read_attribute is now in the top 5 responsible for creating the most objects (in a typical rails app), and thereby being a burden on the GC; i.e. it slows things down.
