Debian Security Advisory DSA-2609-1 security@debian.org

Package : rails
Vulnerability : SQL query manipulation
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2013-0155

An interpretation conflict can cause the Active Record component of
Rails, a web framework for the Ruby programming language, to truncate
queries in unexpected ways. This may allow attackers to elevate their
privileges.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.3.5-1.2+squeeze5.

We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
