Fedora 16 : rubygem-actionpack-3.0.10-2.fc16 (2012-0643)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57695


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way the 'translate' helper method of the Ruby on Rails performed HTML escaping of interpolated user input, when interpolation in combination with HTML-safe translations were used. This release 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-actionpack package.
