tag_insight = "Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the interpreter for
the Ruby language, which may lead to denial of service and other
security problems. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2008-3655

Keita Yamaguchi discovered that several safe level restrictions
are insufficiently enforced.

CVE-2008-3656

Christian Neukirchen discovered that the WebRick module uses
inefficient algorithms for HTTP header splitting, resulting in
denial of service through resource exhaustion.

CVE-2008-3657

It was discovered that the dl module doesn't perform taintness
checks.

CVE-2008-3790

Luka Treiber and Mitja Kolsek discovered that recursively nested
XML entities can lead to denial of service through resource
exhaustion in rexml.

CVE-2008-3905

Tanaka Akira discovered that the resolv module uses sequential
transaction IDs and a fixed source port for DNS queries, which
makes it more vulnerable to DNS spoofing attacks.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.9.0+20060609-1etch3. Packages for arm will be provided later.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.9.0.2-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your ruby1.9 packages.";
