High Nessus Plugin ID 63434


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Ruby on Rails team reports :

There is a SQL injection vulnerability in Active Record in ALL versions. Due to the way dynamic finders in Active Record extract options from method parameters, a method parameter can mistakenly be used as a scope. Carefully crafted requests can use the scope to inject arbitrary SQL.


Update the affected package.
