The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


A patch is applied to this rpm for XSS security vulnerability found in WEBrick module which is now tagged as CVE-2010-0541. A bug was reported that ruby crashes when executing a script which uses some unqualified constant. Also it seems that Ruby/Tk in current rpm in Fedora causes crash even in some easy case. This new rpm will fix these issues.
