Description

An issue was discovered in RubyGems 2.6 and later through 3.0.2. A crafted gem with a multi-line name is not handled correctly. Therefore, an attacker could inject arbitrary code to the stub line of gemspec, which is eval-ed by code in ensure_loadable_spec during the preinstall check.

Solution(s)

  • debian-upgrade-jruby
  • debian-upgrade-ruby2-5
  • debian-upgrade-rubygems
