SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA vulnerability is found on Ruby on Rails in the escaping code for the form helpers, which also affects the rpms shipped in Fedora Project.
Attackers who can inject deliberately malformed unicode strings into the form helpers can defeat the escaping checks and inject arbitrary HTML. This issue has been tagged as CVE-2009-3009. These new rpms will fix this issue.
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.
