Description

This update of ruby provides 1.8.7p357, which contains many stability fixes and bug fixes, which are fully compatible with the previous version. You can review the detailed list here :

http://svn.ruby-lang.org/repos/ruby/tags/v1_8_7_357/ChangeLog

The particularly noteworthy fixes are :

  • Hash functions are now using a randomized seed to avoid algorithmic complexity attacks (CVE-2011-4815). For this OpenSSL::Random.seed at the SecureRandom.random_bytes is used if available.

  • mkconfig.rb: fix for continued lines.

  • Fix Infinity to be greater than any bignum number.

  • initialize store->ex_data.sk.

  • some IPv6 related fixes

  • zlib fixes

  • reinitialize PRNG when forking children (CVE-2011-2686/CVE-2011-3009)

  • securerandom fixes (CVE-2011-2705)

  • uri route_to fixes

  • fix race condition with variables and autoload
