Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2006-0427: irb

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the irb packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated ruby packages that fix a denial of service 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 creates its xmlrpc and http servers. The
servers use a non blocking socket, which enables a remote user to cause a
denial of service condition if they are able to transmit a large volume of
information from the network server. (CVE-2006-1931)

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