Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:192: ruby

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ruby package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:192 (ruby).

The CGI library in Ruby 1.8 permited a remote attacker to cause a Denial
of Service via an HTTP request with a multipart MIME body that
contained an invalid boundary specifier, which would result in an
infinite loop and CPU consumption.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
