FreeBSD : rubygem-rails -- evaluation of ruby code (90064567-28b1-11db-844d-000c6ec775d9)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

The Ruby on Rails blog reports :

With Rails 1.1.0 through 1.1.5 (minus the short-lived 1.1.3), you can
trigger the evaluation of Ruby code through the URL because of a bug
in the routing code of Rails. This means that you can essentially take
down a Rails process by starting something like /script/profiler, as
the code will run for a long time and that process will be hung while
it happens. Other URLs can even cause data loss.
