Fedora 18 : ruby-184.108.40.2062-29.fc18 (2013-3037)
High Nessus Plugin ID 65037
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe new version 1.9.3 patchlevel 392 is released.
A bug was found in the previous ruby that unrestricted entity expansion can lead to a DoS vulnerability in REXML. 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected ruby package.
