Package : ruby-rack CVE ID : CVE-2015-3225 Debian Bug : 789311

Tomek Rabczak from the NCC Group discovered a flaw in the normalize_params() method in Rack, a modular Ruby webserver interface. A remote attacker can use this flaw via specially crafted requests to cause a SystemStackError and potentially cause a denial of service condition for the service.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.1-2.1+deb7u1.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 1.5.2-3+deb8u1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.5.2-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-rack packages.
