Fedora 16 : rubygem-actionpack-3.0.10-2.fc16 (2012-0643)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way the 'translate'
helper method of the Ruby on Rails performed HTML escaping of
interpolated user input, when interpolation in combination with
HTML-safe translations were used. This release fixes the bug.

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.
