Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated ruby packages that fix an arbitrary command execution issue are now
available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

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

A bug was found in the way Ruby launched an XMLRPC server. If an XMLRPC
server is launched in a certain way, it becomes possible for a remote
attacker to execute arbitrary commands within the XMLRPC server. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2005-1992 to this issue.

Users of Ruby should update to these erratum packages, which contain a
backported patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.
