- -----------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : ruby-sidekiq
Version : 5.2.3+dfsg-1+deb10u1
CVE ID : CVE-2021-30151 CVE-2022-23837
Debian Bug : 987354 1004193

ruby-sidekiq, a simple, efficient background processing for Ruby,
had a couple of vulnerabilities as follows:


Sidekiq allows XSS via the queue name of the live-poll feature
when Internet Explorer is used.


In api.rb in Sidekiq, there is no limit on the number of days
when requesting stats for the graph. This overloads the system,
affecting the Web UI, and makes it unavailable to users.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-sidekiq packages.
