Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200912-02 (Ruby on Rails: Multiple vulnerabilities)

The following vulnerabilities were discovered:
sameer     reported that lib/action_controller/cgi_process.rb removes the     :cookie_only attribute from the default session options     (CVE-2007-6077), due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-5380 (GLSA     200711-17).
Tobias Schlottke reported that the :limit and     :offset parameters of ActiveRecord::Base.find() are not properly     sanitized before being processed (CVE-2008-4094).
Steve from     Coderrr reported that the CRSF protection in protect_from_forgery()     does not parse the text/plain MIME format (CVE-2008-7248).
Nate reported a documentation error that leads to the assumption     that a block returning nil passed to     authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest() would deny access to the     requested resource (CVE-2009-2422).
Brian Mastenbrook reported     an input sanitation flaw, related to multibyte characters     (CVE-2009-3009).
Gabe da Silveira reported an input sanitation     flaw in the strip_tags() function (CVE-2009-4214).
Coda Hale     reported an information disclosure vulnerability related to HMAC     digests (CVE-2009-3086).

Impact :

A remote attacker could send specially crafted requests to a vulnerable     application, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary SQL     statements or a circumvention of access control. A remote attacker     could also conduct session fixation attacks to hijack a user's session     or bypass the CSRF protection mechanism, or furthermore conduct     Cross-Site Scripting attacks or forge a digest via multiple attempts.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
