Description

There is a possible denial of service vulnerability in Action View (Rails) <5.2.2.1, <5.1.6.2, <5.0.7.2, <4.2.11.1 where specially crafted accept headers can cause action view to consume 100% cpu and make the server unresponsive.

Solution(s)

  • ruby-on-rails-upgrade-4_2_11_1
  • ruby-on-rails-upgrade-5_0_7_2
  • ruby-on-rails-upgrade-5_1_6_2
  • ruby-on-rails-upgrade-5_2_2_1

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.
