Doc Text:
A command injection flaw was found in Rust, exclusive to Windows environments. When invoking batch files on Windows using the Command API, Rust explicitly uses cmd.exe which has complicated parsing rules for arguments. If an attacker can control part of the command arguments of the batch file, this could bypass the argument escaping and inject arbitrary shell commands.
