New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis ruby update improves return value checks for openssl function OCSP_basic_verify() (CVE-2009-0642) which allowed an attacker to use revoked certificates. The entropy of DNS identifiers was increased (CVE-2008-3905) to avaid spoofing attacks. The code for parsing XML data was vulnerable to a denial of service bug (CVE-2008-3790). An attack on algorithm complexity was possible in function WEBrick::HTTP::DefaultFileHandler() while parsing HTTP requests (CVE-2008-3656) as well as by using the regex engine (CVE-2008-3443) causing high CPU load. Ruby's access restriction code (CVE-2008-3655) as well as safe-level handling using function DL.dlopen() (CVE-2008-3657) and big decimal handling (CVE-2009-1904) was improved.
Bypassing HTTP basic authentication (authenticate_with_http_digest) is not possible anymore.
SolutionUpdate the affected ruby packages.
