Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Andres Salomon noticed a problem with the CGI session management in
Ruby. The CGI:Session's FileStore implementations store session

permission issues (CVE-2004-0755).

The ruby developers have corrected a problem in the ruby CGI module
that can be triggered remotely and cause an inifinite loop on the
server (CVE-2004-0983).

The updated packages are patched to prevent these problems.

Update the affected packages.
