Ruby on Rails < 1.2.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The remote server is running the Ruby on Rails web application. This version of Rails is reported to be vulnerable to a number of flaws. It is reported that a remote attacker can perform man-in-the-middle attacks and gain user credentials. It is also reported that there is a content-parsing flaw in the XML handler that would allow an attacker to either gain unauthorized access to data or cause the application to fail.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.2.5 or higher.
