http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : ruby
Date : July 28, 2006
Affected: 2006.0, Corporate 3.0

Problem Description:

A number of flaws were discovered in the safe-level restrictions in

an attacker to create a carefully crafted malicious script that could
allow them to bypass certain safe-level restrictions.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
