GLSA-201207-06 : JRuby: Denial of Service
High Nessus Plugin ID 59898
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201207-06 (JRuby: Denial of Service)
JRuby does not properly randomize hash functions to protect against hash collision attacks.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted input, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll JRuby users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-java/jruby-220.127.116.11'
