Fedora 18 : ruby- (2012-16071)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 62607


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


New version 1.9.3 patchlevel 286 is released.

A potential security flaw was found on the previous ruby that using crafted string might lead to unintentional file creation. This new rpm will fix this issue.

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 ruby package.
