The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200912-02
(Ruby on Rails: Multiple vulnerabilities)
The following vulnerabilities were discovered:
reported that lib/action_controller/cgi_process.rb removes the
:cookie_only attribute from the default session options
(CVE-2007-6077), due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-5380 (GLSA
Tobias Schlottke reported that the :limit and
:offset parameters of ActiveRecord::Base.find() are not properly
sanitized before being processed (CVE-2008-4094).
Coderrr reported that the CRSF protection in protect_from_forgery()
does not parse the text/plain MIME format (CVE-2008-7248).
Nate reported a documentation error that leads to the assumption
that a block returning nil passed to
authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest() would deny access to the
requested resource (CVE-2009-2422).
Brian Mastenbrook reported
an input sanitation flaw, related to multibyte characters
Gabe da Silveira reported an input sanitation
flaw in the strip_tags() function (CVE-2009-4214).
reported an information disclosure vulnerability related to HMAC
A remote attacker could send specially crafted requests to a vulnerable
application, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary SQL
statements or a circumvention of access control. A remote attacker
could also conduct session fixation attacks to hijack a user's session
or bypass the CSRF protection mechanism, or furthermore conduct
Cross-Site Scripting attacks or forge a digest via multiple attempts.
There is no known workaround at this time.
