Package : ruby1.9
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem type : local/remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-5162 CVE-2007-5770

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Ruby, an object-oriented
scripting language. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2007-5162

It was discovered that the Ruby HTTP(S) module performs insufficient
validation of SSL certificates, which may lead to man-in-the-middle
attacks.

CVE-2007-5770

It was discovered that the Ruby modules for FTP, Telnet, IMAP, POP
and SMTP perform insufficient validation of SSL certificates, which
may lead to man-in-the-middle attacks.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.9.0+20060609-1etch1. Updated packages for hppa and sparc will
be provided later.

The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain ruby1.9 packages.

We recommend that you upgrade your ruby1.9 packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.


Debian (stable)
- ---------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
