Description

actionpack/lib/action_view/template/resolver.rb in Ruby on Rails 3.0.x before 3.0.4, when a case-insensitive filesystem is used, does not properly implement filters associated with the list of available templates, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via an action name that uses an unintended case for alphabetic characters.

Solution(s)

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
