Description

New ruby packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/ruby-1.9.3_p484-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded. This update fixes a heap overflow in floating point parsing. A specially crafted string could cause a heap overflow leading to a denial of service attack via segmentation faults and possibly arbitrary code execution. For more information, see: https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2013/11/22/heap-overflow-in-floating-point-parsing-cve-2013-4164/ http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-4164 ( Security fix )
