Description

A patch is applied to this rpm for XSS security vulnerability found in WEBrick module which is now tagged as CVE-2010-0541. A bug was reported that ruby crashes when executing a script which uses some unqualified constant. Also it seems that Ruby/Tk in current rpm in Fedora causes crash even in some easy case. This new rpm will fix these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
