Sobelow.DOS.BinToAtom (Sobelow v0.11.1) View Source

Denial of Service via Unsafe Atom Interpolation

In Elixir, atoms are not garbage collected. As such, if user input is used to create atoms (as in :"foo#{bar}", or in :erlang.binary_to_atom), it may result in memory exhaustion. Prefer the String.to_existing_atom function for untrusted user input.

Atom interpolation checks can be ignored with the following command:

$ mix sobelow -i DOS.BinToAtom
