Debian Security Advisory DSA-3247-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Alessandro Ghedini May 02, 2015 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : ruby2.1 CVE ID : CVE-2015-1855

It was discovered that the Ruby OpenSSL extension, part of the interpreter for the Ruby language, did not properly implement hostname matching, in violation of RFC 6125. This could allow remote attackers to perform a man-in-the-middle attack via crafted SSL certificates.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 2.1.5-2+deb8u1.

For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.1.5-3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.1.5-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your ruby2.1 packages.
