RHSA-2005-799: irb

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the irb packages

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 handles eval statements. It is possible for
a malicious script to call eval in such a way that can permit the bypass of
certain safe-level restrictions. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-2337 to this issue.

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