The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was discovered in the way Ruby's CGI module handles certain
HTTP requests. If a remote attacker sends a specially crafted request,
it is possible to cause the ruby CGI script to enter an infinite loop,
possibly causing a denial of service. (CVE-2006-6303)
An SSL certificate validation flaw was discovered in several Ruby Net
modules. The libraries were not checking the requested host name
against the common name (CN) in the SSL server certificate, possibly
allowing a man in the middle attack. (CVE-2007-5162, CVE-2007-5770)
