Debian LTS Advisory DLA-2403-1 firstname.lastname@example.org https://www.debian.org/lts/security/ Markus Koschany October 09, 2020 https://wiki.debian.org/LTS
Package : rails Version : 2:188.8.131.52-1+deb9u4 CVE ID : CVE-2020-15169 Debian Bug : 970040
A potential Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability was found in rails,
a ruby based MVC framework. Views that allow the user to control the
default (not found) value of the
translate helpers could be
susceptible to XSS attacks. When an HTML-unsafe string is passed as the
default for a missing translation key named html or ending in _html, the
default string is incorrectly marked as HTML-safe and not escaped.
For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 2:184.108.40.206-1+deb9u4.
We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
