Description

Ruby 1.6.x up to 1.6.8, 1.8.x up to 1.8.2, and 1.9.0 development up to 2005-09-01 allows attackers to bypass safe level and taint flag protections and execute disallowed code when Ruby processes a program through standard input (stdin).

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-ruby

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.
