Fedora 16 : rubygem-rack-1.3.0-2.fc16 (2012-0166)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57563


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Julian Walde and Alexander Klink reported a flaw in the hash function used in the implementation of the Ruby-rack arrays (CVE-2011-5036).
Ruby-rack arrays are implemented using the hash table that maps keys to values. This update fixes the bug.

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-rack package.
