[SECURITY] [DSA 2830-1] ruby-i18n security update

Description

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Debian Security Advisory DSA-2830-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Florian Weiemr December 30, 2013 http://www.debian.org/security/faq - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Package : ruby-i18n Vulnerability : cross-site scripting Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2013-4492 Peter McLarnan discovered that the internationalization component of Ruby on Rails does not properly encode parameters in generated HTML code, resulting in a cross-site scripting vulnerability. This update corrects the underlying vulnerability in the i18n gem, as provided by the ruby-i18n package. The oldstable distribution (squeeze) is not affected by this problem; the libi18n-ruby package does not contain the vulnerable code. For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 0.6.0-3+deb7u1. For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 0.6.9-1. We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-i18n packages.
