Fedora 10 : rubygem-actionpack-2.1.1-5.fc10 (2009-12966)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 43091


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Two security issues are found on activepack shipped on Fedora 10. One bug is that there is a weakness in the strip_tags function in ruby on rails (bug 542786, CVE-2009-4214). Another one is a possibility to circumvent protection against cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks (bug 544329). This new rpm will fix these issues.

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.


Update the affected rubygem-actionpack package.
