Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated ruby package that fixes insecure file permissions for CGI
session
files is now available.

Ruby is an interpreted scripting language for object-oriented programming.

could permit a malicious local user the ability to read CGI session data.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2004-0755 to this issue.

Users are advised to upgrade to this erratum package, which contains a
backported patch to CGI::Session FileStore.
