Package : rails
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2009-3086 CVE-2009-4214
Debian Bug : 545063 558685

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Ruby on Rails, a web
application framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2009-3086
        The cookie store may be vulnerability to a timing attack,
        potentially allowing remote attackers to forge message
        digests.

CVE-2009-4214
        A cross-site scripting vulnerability in the strip_tags
        function allows remote user-assisted attackers to inject
        arbitrary web script.

For the oldstable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed
in version 2.1.0-7+lenny0.2.

For the other distributions, these problems have been fixed in version
2.2.3-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
