Description

Ruby on Rails 2.1 before 2.1.3 and 2.2.x before 2.2.2 does not verify tokens for requests with certain content types, which allows remote attackers to bypass cross-site request forgery (CSRF) protection for requests to applications that rely on this protection, as demonstrated using text/plain.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-rubygem-actionpack
  • suse-upgrade-rubygem-actionpack-2_0
  • suse-upgrade-rubygem-actionpack-2_1
  • suse-upgrade-rubygem-actionpack-2_3

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.
