Fedora 10 : rubygem-actionpack-2.1.1-5.fc10 (2009-12966)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Two security issues are found on activepack shipped on Fedora 10. One
bug is that there is a weakness in the strip_tags function in ruby on
rails (bug 542786, CVE-2009-4214). Another one is a possibility to
circumvent protection against cross-site request forgery (CSRF)
attacks (bug 544329). This new rpm will fix these issues.

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.
