Description

Charlie Somerville discovered that Ruby incorrectly handled floating point number conversion. An attacker could possibly use this issue with an application that converts text to floating point numbers to cause the application to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2013-4164)

Vit Ondruch discovered that Ruby did not perform taint checking for certain functions. An attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass certain intended restrictions. (CVE-2013-2065).

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