Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

A vulnerability is found on Ruby on Rails in the escaping code for the
form helpers, which also affects the rpms shipped in Fedora Project.
Attackers who can inject deliberately malformed unicode strings into
the form helpers can defeat the escaping checks and inject arbitrary
HTML. This issue has been tagged as CVE-2009-3009. These new rpms will
fix this issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
