Posted on: 12/20/2017 10:23 AM

New ruby packages are available for Slackware 14.2 and -current to fix a security issue.

Ruby (SSA:2017-353-01) Update for Slackware


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/ruby-2.2.9-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes a security issue:
Net::FTP#get, getbinaryfile, gettextfile, put, putbinaryfile, and puttextfile
use Kernel#open to open a local file. If the localfile argument starts with
the pipe character "|", the command following the pipe character is executed.
The default value of localfile is File.basename(remotefile), so malicious FTP
servers could cause arbitrary command execution.
For more information, see:

(* Security fix *)
