Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : ruby (MDVSA-2009:325)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in ruby :

ext/openssl/ossl_ocsp.c in Ruby 1.8 and 1.9 does not properly check
the return value from the OCSP_basic_verify function, which might
allow remote attackers to successfully present an invalid X.509
certificate, possibly involving a revoked certificate (CVE-2009-0642).

The BigDecimal library in Ruby 1.8.6 before p369 and 1.8.7 before p173
allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) via a string argument that represents a large
number, as demonstrated by an attempted conversion to the Float data
type (CVE-2009-1904).

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0
customers

This update provides a solution to these vulnerabilities.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.9
