Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Rails, the Ruby web application framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

  • CVE-2011-0446 Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities when JavaScript encoding is used, allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

  • CVE-2011-0447 Rails does not properly validate HTTP requests that contain an X-Requested-With header, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks.
