Description

Off-by-one error in the encodes function in pack.c in Ruby 1.9.3 and earlier, and 2.x through 2.1.2, when using certain format string specifiers, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) via vectors that trigger a stack-based buffer overflow.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libruby2_1-2_1
  • suse-upgrade-ruby2-1
  • suse-upgrade-ruby2-1-devel
  • suse-upgrade-ruby2-1-stdlib

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.
