Debian DSA-5066-1 : ruby2.5 - security update

Description

The remote Debian 10 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the dsa-5066 advisory. - The REXML gem before 3.2.5 in Ruby before 2.6.7, 2.7.x before 2.7.3, and 3.x before 3.0.1 does not properly address XML round-trip issues. An incorrect document can be produced after parsing and serializing. (CVE-2021-28965) - In RDoc 3.11 through 6.x before 6.3.1, as distributed with Ruby through 3.0.1, it is possible to execute arbitrary code via | and tags in a filename. (CVE-2021-31799) - An issue was discovered in Ruby through 2.6.7, 2.7.x through 2.7.3, and 3.x through 3.0.1. A malicious FTP server can use the PASV response to trick Net::FTP into connecting back to a given IP address and port. This potentially makes curl extract information about services that are otherwise private and not disclosed (e.g., the attacker can conduct port scans and service banner extractions). (CVE-2021-31810) - An issue was discovered in Ruby through 2.6.7, 2.7.x through 2.7.3, and 3.x through 3.0.1. Net::IMAP does not raise an exception when StartTLS fails with an an unknown response, which might allow man-in-the- middle attackers to bypass the TLS protections by leveraging a network position between the client and the registry to block the StartTLS command, aka a StartTLS stripping attack. (CVE-2021-32066) - Date.parse in the date gem through 3.2.0 for Ruby allows ReDoS (regular expression Denial of Service) via a long string. The fixed versions are 3.2.1, 3.1.2, 3.0.2, and 2.0.1. (CVE-2021-41817) - CGI::Cookie.parse in Ruby through 2.6.8 mishandles security prefixes in cookie names. This also affects the CGI gem through 0.3.0 for Ruby. (CVE-2021-41819) Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
