Package : ruby-activesupport-3.2 Version : 3.2.6-6+deb7u2 CVE ID : CVE-2015-3227

The support and utility classes used by the Rails 3.2 framework allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (SystemStackError) via a large XML document depth.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.6-6+deb7u2.

Additionally this upload adds 'active_support/security_utils' that will be used by ruby-actionpack-3.2 to address CVE-2015-7576.

We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-activesupport-3.2 packages.
