At the last meeting, I brought up the fact that
accepts_nested_attri­butes_for can lead to security holes that you
didn't expect if used incorrectly.  I was coding something yesterday,
and I realized that attributes= can lead to vulnerabilities too.  I
realized that almost everyone is vulnerable to this attack.  I brought
this up on the SF Ruby mailing list, which many of you are probably
subscribed to anyway.  There's a good thread going on.  The most
important link is:

Happy Hacking!
