Ruby on Rails < 2.0.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4764
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.
DescriptionThe remote server is running the Ruby on Rails web application.
This version of Rails is reported to be vulnerable to a flaw in the way that it handles user-supplied input to the 'redirect_to()' function in the 'ActionController::Base' class. An attacker exploiting this flaw would be able to inject arbitrary HTTP headers that could lead to cross-site request forgery (CSRF), cross-site scripting (XSS) and other attacks.
SolutionUpgrade to version 2.0.5 or higher.
