Scientific Linux Security Update : rubygem-bundler and rubygem-thor on SL7.x (noarch)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 87573


The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


A flaw was found in the way Bundler handled gems available from multiple sources. An attacker with access to one of the sources could create a malicious gem with the same name, which they could then use to trick a user into installing, potentially resulting in execution of code from the attacker-supplied malicious gem. (CVE-2013-0334)

Bundler has been upgraded to upstream version 1.7.8 and Thor has been upgraded to upstream version 1.19.1, both of which provide a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous versions.


Update the affected packages.
