Fedora 13 : ruby-1.8.6.420-2.fc13 (2011-1913)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 52485

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Two patches backported from 1.8.7 branch, for

- Symlink race condition in FileUtils.remove_entry_secure

- bypass of $SAFE mechanism in Exception#to_s

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.

Solution

Update the affected ruby package.
