Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Ruby on Rails team reports :

There is a SQL injection vulnerability in Active Record in ALL
versions. Due to the way dynamic finders in Active Record extract
options from method parameters, a method parameter can mistakenly be
used as a scope. Carefully crafted requests can use the scope to
inject arbitrary SQL.
