Scientific Linux Security Update : rubygem-bundler and rubygem-thor on SL7.x (noarch)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A flaw was found in the way Bundler handled gems available from
multiple sources. An attacker with access to one of the sources could
create a malicious gem with the same name, which they could then use
to trick a user into installing, potentially resulting in execution of
code from the attacker-supplied malicious gem. (CVE-2013-0334)

Bundler has been upgraded to upstream version 1.7.8 and Thor has been
upgraded to upstream version 1.19.1, both of which provide a number of
bug fixes and enhancements over the previous versions.
