Fedora 21 : ruby-2.1.4-24.fc21 (2014-14096)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 79092


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Update to Ruby 2.1.4. Include only vendor directories, not their content (rhbz#1114071). Fix 'invalid regex' warning for non-rubygem packages (rhbz#1154067). Use load macro introduced in RPM 4.12.

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.
