DSA-2620-1 rails -- several vulnerabilities
- Date Reported:
- 12 Feb 2013
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2013-0276, CVE-2013-0277.
- More information:
Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Ruby on Rails, a Ruby framework for web application development.
The blacklist provided by the attr_protected method could be bypassed with crafted requests, having an application-specific impact.
In some applications, the +serialize+ helper in ActiveRecord could be tricked into deserializing arbitrary YAML data, possibly leading to remote code execution.
For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 2.3.5-1.2+squeeze7.
We recommend that you upgrade your rails packages.
